It was only a training exercise and the bullets were only blanks, but the sounds of gunfire echoing through the hallways of local schools shook everyone to the core — teachers, students and staff alike.

In the wake of the recent school violence, and after a strong demand from area schools, the Kentucky State Police with input from school administrators across the state, have developed a program aimed at helping all schools respond effectively during an active shooting incident.

Instructors for the exercise, known as The Safe School Active Shooter Training, were all Kentucky State Police Post 10 troopers. The three-hour training program was set up to give school personnel some idea of what they can do if someone comes into the school brandishing a gun.
