— FREDERICK (AP) — Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins said his deputies are receiving training regarding people with intellectual disabilities.

Tuesday’s announcement comes one year after three deputies, moonlighting as mall security officers, were implicated in the death of a 26-year-old man with Down syndrome.

Jenkins said the training program is offered by Mount St. Mary’s University.
