Court Services, Civil Response Training, 02/12/2020, Irwindale
In our continued efforts to maintain public safety awareness, education and overall law and order, the LASD frequently conducts deputy and supervisory training to enhance our overall proficiency in crowd management, intervention, control and safety techniques.
Today over 500 Court Services Deputies participated in Civil Response training at Irwindale Speedway, in Irwindale.
The purpose of the training is to bring up the skills and abilities of our deputies. In the event that there is a rally, protest or some type of disturbance. With this training deputies will have the basic skills and be able to intervene and handle a civil disobedience if necessary.
One of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) primary goals is the protection of the public’s First Amendment rights of free speech and the right to peacefully and lawfully assemble, demonstrate, protest, rally and/or gather to celebrate. LASD also has the responsibility to ensure public safety for all, in the protection of lives and property.
