Troopers Conduct Safe Schools/Active Shooter Training for School Administrators
Troopers from the Indiana State Police Evansville Post held their first Safe Schools/Active Shooter Training session Tuesday for school administrators.
The training session was conducted at the Old Princeton High School and was attended by 50 school administrators from Warrick, Vanderburgh, Gibson, Knox and Pike Counties.
During the training session, troopers instructed school personnel on proper tactics for survival during an active shooter event.
Troopers also conducted an active shooter scenario using blank ammunition.
The scenario was designed to give the administrators a feel of what it might be like during an actual active shooter situation.
The training session was the result of several months of preparation by Indiana State Police in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Education to provide training for school administrators on the proper response to an active shooter.
