Scott County Officials Train For Inmate Escape Scenario

Scott County Officials Train For Inmate Escape Scenario

Multiple agencies in Scott County spent Monday afternoon in a training exercise preparing for future prisoner escapes.
In 2011, Scout County law enforcement officials were unable to find two escaped prisoners before they left town.

Since then, agencies have been working together to better prepare for the next time an escaped convict is in the county.

Scott County Sheriff Tony Hampton said, "We work really well together in this county and we've really formed a great relationship in the past three years."

Deputies from Scott County joined officers from Fish and Wildlife, Kentucky State Police, and Georgetown police Monday afternoon at Veterans Memorial Wildlife Management Area for a training exercise.

The agencies searched for two men pretending to be escaped prisoners running from authorities.

Teams of two searched 100 acre grids, keeping in contact with a command post.

In less than 3 hours, the two men were located on the 2,500 acre property.
