Joe_ArpaioThe world’s toughest sheriff recruited one tough guy to assist in a training mission over the weekend.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona brought in actor and reservist Steven Seagal to help train and prepare posse members how to react in the advent of a school crisis. At a  valley school  volunteer students played themselves while deputies took the roles of both shooters and rescuers in several scenarios. Seagal worked with deputies teaching hand to hand combat techniques.

The NRA and many government officials are recommending trained officers patrol schools in the wake of the Connecticut school tragedy.

While not everyone was happy with the sheriff’s plan to monitor school grounds within the county Sheriff Joe believes this training is valuable and hopes to continue it annually.

  1. Seagal is one of VERY FEW, people who are in the acting business, who is 100% real, and not phony.
