WHAT: California State University, Northridge police officers will host an “active shooter” training drill with members of several law enforcement agencies. The multi-agency exercise is designed to test their coordinated response to a shooting on campus.
The drill will include scenarios requiring law enforcement officers to stop an active shooting suspect and tend to injured persons with police rescue teams. The rescue teams are intended to get to an injured individual as quickly as possible to increase the survival. These rescue teams are among the latest recommendations for police departments from the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
