County Sheriff’s Report
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) purposely destroyed a house in Oakley Tuesday attempting to enter the residence.
Luckily, no one was home during the training exercise.
"They’re going to be tearing that house down," Summit County Sheriff Dave Edmunds said. "We can flash-bang it and use gas and then the house is bulldozed over."
SERT provides specially trained deputies to diffuse standoffs throughout Summit and Wasatch counties.
"It’s always nice whenever we can get a real residence. It’s real world," Edmunds said about this week’s training session. "Those are close quarters and there really is not better training than having the opportunity to train in a house, typically, that’s where [SERT] operations are conducted."
