Ionia Complex Emergency Response Team (ERT) went to Moundsville, W.Va., to participate in a nationwide mock prison riot competition with several other teams from Michigan to form the Michigan ERT team. Overall, the Michigan ERT team took second place, and three Ionia corrections officers ranked high in an individual obstacle course called “Super SWAT Cop.”
“I am just really proud of our three guys,” said Ionia Complex ERT Captain Lt. Patrick Nielsen. “Our team is a group of very dedicated individuals, and have a lot of pride in what we do.”
I’m sure the “search and secure” event was most compelling. Was there also a Best Brushcut competition, or perhaps a “Taser a Grandma Today” tournament?
