DeSoto County supervisors have rejected a zoning board’s recommendation to allow a police tactical training facility near a residential area.
The board of supervisors voted 3-2 Wednesday to approve the conditional use of a 7.5-acre site leased from the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board by Horn Lake-based Tactical Energetic Entry Systems.
The Commercial Appeal reports that supervisors told TEES owner Alan Brosnan that they would help him find another site.
Local residents were concerned about the noise.
Brosnan had said there would be no pistol or rifle shooting.
Brosnan said the closest resident lives a mile away and that Brosnan conducted detonations on March 29 in which only faint “pops” were heard at that distance.
