Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins invited John Guandolo to host a three-day law enforcement training on the so-called “jihadi networks in America.” After advocacy groups raised concerns, the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy announced it would withdraw accreditation for the training. Jenkins, however, doubled down and went ahead with it. According to reports, about 50 law enforcement officials from Culpeper County and surrounding areas were scheduled to attend. Registration per attendee was set at $225.
“The entire group got a lot of information in a short period of time,” Jenkins said after the event. “I certainly do think it was worthwhile.”
Following the event, Jenkins stated, “Everything went smoothly.”
Understanding the Threat materials indicate that Guandolo is “currently a Special Deputy Sheriff in Culpeper County, Virginia.”
