K-State Police and KSU Air Force ROTC held active violence training
The Kansas State University police department teamed up with University's Air Force ROTC, along with the Manhattan Fire Dept., to conduct a large-scale active violence training drill.
Thursday's exercise was conducted at Gen. Richard B. Myers Hall on campus. It provided officers with a more realistic experience, by letting them practice with real students in a multi-level campus building.
They conducted three different scenarios in ROTC members posted as victims, shooters, or bystanders in three classrooms. The training allows officers to act out the steps of A.L.I.C.E., or Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.
The live training exercise included the sounds of real gunfire, along with realistic-looking victims and suspects, which helps with planning and proactively responding to violent situations.
