Our sources tell us that the MCSO deputies are being turned down for training. Our sources tell us the lengths some deputies will go to for proper training after the training is denied.
What happens when a deputy requests rifle training in MCSO and the training is denied? We were told of a courageous deputy that was denied rifle training that was desperately needed. The deputy worked a 12 hour shift, then went to rifle training using his county vehicle to attend the training. According to our sources the use of deputy vehicles in this manner is an unauthorized use. The deputy bought 500 rounds of ammo out of pocket and received the necessary training on his own.
We call that dedication to the mission without leadership support.
