On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Crawfordville Police Department conducted active shooter training at Northridge Middle School.
Police Chief Mike Norman said the CPD has mandatory active shooter training every year even though it’s not required by the state.
Norman said the goal was to prepare officers for any situation they may face.
“It’s the reason for training in anything else in any area that you train in,” he said. “You want to be as proficient as possible to protect as many people as you can and stop the situation from happening.”
Officers were given instruction on how to respond to an active shooter event taking place in a school. Officers went through room clearing, simunitions training and how to operate a tourniquet.
“They’ll be put through some scenarios where a bad guy will be put in a room somewhere or he could be roaming around the hall and then they’re told, ‘Hey, there’s an active shooter going on here, and you have to use your tactics to go through the school, clear the rooms, meet up with this bad guy and if they present a threat, neutralize them,’” said Sergeant Joshua Hoagland.
Roaming through the halls, a group of four officers practiced clearing rooms in the middle school while receiving tips and talking through the best way to approach the situation.
The training was led by Hoagland, Corporal Todd Huckstep and Ryan Teeter.
Question of the Week:

Indiana lawmakers are spending part of their summer studying whether or not to continue to advertise public notices in newspapers all over the state. On one hand, they say it costs too much money. On the other hand, if the government only posts that information on its own website, isn’t that like the fox guarding the henhouse? What do you think? Should our government – at all levels – be required to put their public notices in a local newspaper or is it OK for them to go ahead and only post the information on their own websites?
