ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Dougherty County Police, Albany Police, and Sheriff's Office officials all say this incident will be used in future training their officers and deputies.

The Dougherty Sheriff's Office standard operating policy says deputies are trained to use lethal force only when they reasonably believe their life is in

jeopardy, another person's life is in danger, or to prevent a violent felony act.

Dougherty Sheriff's Office Training Director Captain John Ostrander said "The appearance of a firearm by anyone other than a law enforcement officer themselves of course elevates the threat level. Especially if that firearm is being brandished in a way that is threatened."

Deputies are trained in firearm use and role playing training exercises several times a year.
