Huron Township police will be conducting active shooter training at Huron High School on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“The intent of this training is to allow our officers to train in the schools within our district so that they are fully prepared to protect our children should an event ever occur. Unfortunately, we must always hope for the best, but train for the worst,” said Public Safety Director Everette Robbins.
The training will be real-life scenario based training, and officers will be approaching and entering Huron High School at times with their patrol vehicles and weapons.
The department asks that the public not approach the school or the patrol staff during the training period.
“Rather than send our officers away to training, we decided to bring the training here. The intent of this training is to have the officers become familiar with the layout of our schools and train with the officers that will be responding with them should an incident ever occur. It is training you hope you never have to use,” said Robbins.
“We are thankful for the partnership we have with the Huron School District and plan on doing similar training not only in other buildings within the district, but also within the Summit School District as well. We all agree that there is nothing more important in this community than the safety of our children”
