Written by Pfc. Lynnwood Thomas
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionClarksville, TN – The 163rd Military Police Company Special Reaction Team recently participated in a unique interagency training opportunity with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Unit and the Clarksville Police Department.

Although military and civilian police only work together in extremely rare situations and when approved by Congress, the training provided a chance for the police officers to compare techniques and learn different perspectives of law enforcement operations.

“We’ve never had enough people to do a multiple objective hit all at one time, but working with Montgomery County and CPD gave us enough – that was definitely something we’ve never done before,” Spc. Dylan Shipley said. “It basically became one big team, and it worked out well.”
