Active shooter training at Salem High School

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Ohio - A gathering of police officers at Salem High School on Thursday was only for a training exercise.

Members of the Salem Police Department were taking part in active shooter training.

The instructor, Boardman Police Sergeant Mike Hughes, says the officers learn everything they need to know when responding to an active shooter call at a school or business.

"We go over from the beginning to the end; from approaching the intruder, the assaulter, to evacuating the building," said Sergeant Hughes.

Earlier this year, police also conducted training with teachers on what they need to do in the event of an intruder or other emergency.
