Agencies to Receive Active Shooter Response Training at UW
July 15, 2013 — More than 100 regional law enforcement officers will participate in active shooter response exercises July 22-24 in the University of Wyoming Classroom Building.
“We want to alert the public to alleviate possible concerns about the training,” says Mike Samp, UW Police chief. He says signs placed on the entries to the Classroom Building and on sandwich boards on the sidewalks will inform the public about the training.
“This will be scenario-based training including the use of simunitions (wax bullets) in the Classroom Building,” Samp says. “Uniformed officers and marked patrol vehicles will frequent the area.”
The UWPD and the Laramie Police Department will lead the training exercises.
