 On 04-25-14 a group of 15 officers from Rio de Janeiro and other parts of Brazil graduated at the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters after a week of tactical training from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office Special Reaction Team (SRT). The Brazilian officers were given training on jail cell extractions, use of tactical shields, riot control, use of Tasers and other tactics. The training was done with the assistance of the Region VIII Training Academy facilities to include the firing range as well as the use of the Detention Facilities. Detention Officer L. Trevino led the training and was requested by the Brazilian officers due to his certifications, knowledge, and experience in these tactics. This training will assist the Brazilian Officers with security measures that will be used in the World Cup soccer tournament and the 2016 Summer Olympics.
