Active Shooter Training in Batavia prepares officers for the unthinkable
Written by WBTA STAFF on April 6, 2018
Law Enforcement from the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office and Probation Department, State Police Troop A, along with both LeRoy and Batavia Police Departments have been taking part in an intense two week long Active Shooter Training.
Police Chief Shawn Heubusch said the training is sadly a necessity for all law enforcement in today’s day and age.
The Chief says the exercises are vastly different than other types of police training…
The Active Shooter Training has been on-going all week at the State School for the Blind’s Hamilton Hall in Batavia.
Officers were armed with plastic replica firearms and thrown into active shooter and bomb threat scenarios.
The collaboration of law enforcement entities has allowed officers to exchange techniques and coordinate responses to address the unfortunately growing concern of an active shooter threat.
