MCSO Swat Team to Train Deputies on School-Violence Response Techniques

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 


The Maricopa County Sheriff Department’s SWAT team will train deputies and posse members on the latest techniques for responding to school or workplace violence at the Boulder Creek High School campus Wednesday, July 11.

The campus will be closed. There will be a heavy, visible law enforcement presence, and officials said to expect loud noises. The library will remain open, but no access to the school campus will be allowed, Deer Valley Unified School District officials said in a statement.

The training is for all deputies and posse members who work in MCSO’s District 4 area, which includes North Phoenix and Anthem, said MCSO Sgt. Joaquin Enriquez.

“This is a refresher from the training they have already received,” Enriquez told North Phoenix News. “This is not SWAT training [but] rather training for the first responders with best practices and techniques.”

“This training is conducted by MCSO on a regular basis to better train our first responders for one purpose, the safety of the community.”

Similar training is done once or twice a year, Enriquez said, and while recent incidents of school violence are “top of mind, MCSO regularly conducts this type of training for deputies.”

“DVUSD staff members regularly participate in seminars, trainings, and table top exercises with local police in our ongoing work to improve school safety,” said Monica Allread, DVUSD spokesperson.

“The school gives deputies that work in that area a familiarization as to what to expect if they respond for any call for service,” Enriquez said. “The school provides open space, small space and difficult to navigate areas, which makes for great training methods.”
