Trigg County went under an emergency preparedness survey last week and officials with the state department of homeland security found Cadiz was a safe place to live and law enforcement and other emergency personnel were well-trained and able to deal with potential emergencies well.

Don Alwes was on hand from the Department of Criminal Justice Training, located in Richmond, Ky., to present the findings of the Kentucky Community Preparedness Program. The general finding was that local emergency officials are prepared for a terrorist attack, however some improvements could be made.

“Your officers are already ahead of the curve,” Alwes said.

Cadiz Police Major Duncan Wiggins echoed those thoughts saying Trigg County was in a class by itself.
