The Lowell Post troopers with the Indiana State Police held an active shooter training at Knox Middle School on Monday.
The Safe Schools/Active Shooter Training session was attended by 40 school administrators and troopers instructed school personnel on proper tactics for survival during an active shooter event. The purpose of the Safe Schools/Active Shooter session is to educate school administrators on how to properly respond to an active shooter situation and how law enforcement responds to an active shooter situation. The school staff was directed on what action to take to tend to injured students and to prevent the loss of life.
Troopers also conducted an active shooter scenario at the Knox Middle School using blank ammunition.
The Indiana State Police has been tasked to coordinate active shooter training with local school corporations throughout the state.
