On February 9 the Junior Leadership Class visited the Hood County Sheriff’s Department. Sheriff Deeds explained how the Department operates. We were given a rundown on our highly acclaimed SWAT Team and were allowed to look at some of their weapons and equipment. We got to get inside of their MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle. We took tours of the County Jail, the 911 Dispatch Center and Hood County’s new Emergency Operations Center.
