  • School shootings: We don’t have to live with them

    Why don't we have “active shooter” drills? Why doesn't law enforcement conduct “active shooter drills” in your school? NOT just for the police who have to respond, but FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS who must LOCKDOWN the classrooms and shelter in place before the police arrive?

    In Memoriam Officer Eric Joering and Officer Anthony Morelli

    Commonly, these types of calls are the result of a domestic violence complaint where the victim is unable to convey information to the 911 dispatcher. In this instance, it is possible that the 911 hang up call was made to police dispatch to draw officers into an ambush scenario.
