Dale County sheriff to speak at Brundidge Rotary

Published 11:20 pm Monday, March 4, 2013

Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson will be the guest speaker at the Brundidge Rotary Club Wednesday and the public is invited to attend.

Olson will be the guest of Rotarian and Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport.

“I feel sure that a lot of people would be interested in hearing Sheriff Olson,” Davenport said. “He will talk about the recent hostage situation in Dale County that attracted national interest and attention. We hope that nothing like that ever happens again but we also know that situations occur that we never expect. It’s good to know that there are those who are trained to handle those situations. It will be interesting to hear about how law enforcement agencies prepare for and then work together to alleviate those situations.”
