On-Demand Webinar: How LE and school administrators can train together for active shooter response
This webinar will outline the steps to conducting meetings and deciding on roles, responsibilities and procedures to developing tabletop exercises and small-scale training drills, and eventually graduating to full-scale training exercises that involve realistic role players and responses for active shooter response
While everyone is searching for a solution to prevent school shootings, now is the time for law enforcement agencies to reach out to their local school districts, fire departments and other related agencies in an effort to create training drills, establish city or county-wide reaction plans and gain valuable experience working together. This webinar will outline the steps to accomplish that, from conducting meetings and deciding on roles, responsibilities and procedures to developing tabletop exercises and small-scale training drills, and eventually graduating to full-scale training exercises that involve realistic role players and responses. With these tools, cities and counties will be much better prepared should a school shooting ever occur in their district.
