UPDATE: All Clear at Cave Spring Center

September 29, 2017

Update: Friday, 4:00 p.m.

After the suspect involved in the fatal shooting of an officer was captured, an all clear has been called at Cave Spring Center.


Out of an overabundance of caution, our Administrative Building and Dormitory at Cave Spring Center (CSC) is on lockdown this afternoon (as of 2 p.m.) because of a shooting in neighboring Polk County that claimed the life of an officer. While the shooting occurred some distance from the center, Chief of Police Jeff Boatwright, head of security for GVRA Residential Services, has spoken with local authorities to ensure optimal security for the students we serve at CSC, as law enforcement searches for a male suspect. Parents with questions may speak to Cave Spring Center Staff at (706) 777-2276.
