JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – “TCAT security conducted an active shooter drill this morning, and we were not aware of it,” said Caryville Chief of Police Freddie Stagnolia.

As a result, lots of law enforcement agencies responded. “I guess the good that came out of this is that the response from all the other agencies like La Follette Police and Cove Lake State Park Rangers and more was impressive,” said the chief.

“I spoke with TCAT’s president, Debbie Petree, and TCAT’s law enforcement officer, and they said they would let me know the next time they are going to conduct such a drill,” said Chief Stagnolia. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/15/2024-11:30AM)
