Coming up on a week of the shooting of police officers at a rally in Dallas, DeWitt County Sheriff Jered Shofner is reacting to the incident.
Sheriff Shofner says the news of five slain police officers in Dallas brought anger and heartbreak for the officers that were killed at what was a peaceful protest.
Sheriff Shofner says it's becoming too common, the public hearing about incidents, not having all the facts, and jumping to conclusions. He explains some of that is on the media, but some of it is also on law enforcement agencies.
The Sheriff recently attended and graduated from a 10-week training at the national FBI academy where over 40-hours were dedicated to dealing with the media and how to properly and effectively get information out.
We'll have more on Sheriff Shofner's training at the FBI academy in the coming days on Regional Radio News.
