Congressman Tours Law Enforcement Academy

Congressman Will Hurd got a hands-on tour of the AACOG Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy Tuesday.

He watched cadets go through their training exercises and even took his shots in the shooting and scenario simulator.

“As a member of the Homeland Security Committee, one of things we are trying to do is make sure local law enforcement have the resources that they need,” Hurd said. “An active shooter scenario or the lonewolf scenario, it’s going to be local law enforcement that have to deal with it, so we gotta make sure that they have the proper training to be able to deal with these scenarios.”

He said the bad guys are always changing their tactics and we need to stay a step ahead.

“This facilty here, right here in San Antonio, is a great way to be able to do that,” he said.
