Mantracker in Coweta County this Week

by Wes Mayer

Starting today and ending Thursday, public safety personnel and law enforcement officers from all over Georgia will be crowding to Coweta County for the 2014 Mantracker Public Safety Conference.

The main venue for the conference is the Coweta County Fairgrounds on Pine Road, but classes will also be held around the county, including at the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office on Greison Trail, the Newnan-Coweta Airport – Whitlock Field on West Aviation Way and the Newnan-Coweta Firearms Range on Old Corinth Road.

Classes cover multiple areas of law enforcement, such as canine tracking and detecting, firearms training, communication, criminal procedure, courtroom demeanor and more. There are also a few competitions involving marksmanship and canine patrol teams.

Five training sessions will be held each day, and the conference will end with the “best cookout ever” at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
