Crisp County taking advantage of laser simulator

CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - Several agencies across the state are contacting the Crisp County Sheriff's Office after they saw a story we showed you. The department's new laser simulator trains officers on when to use deadly force, while also allowing members of the public to see what law enforcers face with each day.

Deputies from Crisp County are headed to Appling County to demonstrate the training tool early next month.

"Like Sheriff Hancock did, they see the importance of letting the people in the community know the stresses that law enforcement is put under and the type of training that is available to them," said Training officer Michael Fraser.

Fraser says other agencies have reached out as well to get a training demonstration.
