PDs see influx of requests from public for active shooter training

The Waxahachie Police Department is offering free active shooter/critical incident training to churches, businesses and schools in the community. Departments across the state and country are getting calls about active shooter training following the deadly attack at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs. Waxahachie Officer O.T. Glidewell said the department reached out to the public via the department’s Facebook page with the idea of educating citizens on what precautions they can take if they are ever caught in such situations. And it has caught on like wildfire. Glidewell said it’s something the department has wanted to do for a while, but since the tragic events in Sutherland Springs, it has sped up the process in response to the need to do something in the form of educating and preparing the public. Officers will visit churches, schools or business that show interest in the training. Read this story and more in your Weekday edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
