The Pearsall Police Department hosted a training in conjunction with the US Border Patrol for law enforcement officials in the area. The training, taught by the USBP South Sector out of Eagle Pass, provided officers with close combat skills. “The course taught our police officers technique and targeting fundamentals,” Pearsall Police Chief Humberto Torralba II said. Participants were also introduced to efficient and sensible moves for self defense when encountering combative suspects. The police chief says he feels the course provided his officers with the confidence to defend themselves in a short time. Along with officers from the police department, Pct. 3 Constable Daniel Zapata and officers from the Pearsall ISD Police Dept. participated in the eight-hour training at Pearsall High School. “I understand the importance and the value of training and educating our police personnel,” the police chief said. “[Training is] directly correlated with the public’s perception and the wellbeing of the Pearsall community.”
