Active shooter training PPD

Original post made by steve , Birdland, on Dec 14, 2012

Can someone from the police department, city government tell us what plans they have and when was the last time the local beat officer trained in an active shooter situation. I know the swat teams train for these kinds of situations.

All police department's train for active killer situations at least once a year.

Yes..the PD trains yearly for large scenarios like an active shooter in a public setting...however, due to budget cuts and low staffing levels, training is at a bare minimum. Perhaps a letter to the City Manager addressing these concerns from a citizen would help solve some of the issues.
