St. Augustine active shooter training
 Comment(s)

The St. Augustine Police Department and several other Florida-based agencies went through active shooter training scenarios earlier this week in dorms at Flagler College.

According to the St. Augustine Record:

The scenarios were part of an effort to synchronize protocol among agencies that would respond to an active shooter situation.

This is the first year an active shooter scenario has been played out in these buildings and the first training session of this scale in the area, particularly for this kind of situation.

“This gives (officers) the ability to get to the scene, have everyone be on the same page and implement a plan of action as soon as they get there,” Kerry Davis, Director of Security at Flagler College, told the St. Augustine Record. “Eventually, we want to do this same type of exercise in other buildings around campus, so officers can get training in different scenarios.”

Participating agencies included the St. Augustine Police Department, St. Johns County Fire Rescue, St. Johns County Sherriff’s Office, St. Augustine Beach Police Department, Flagler College Campus Security, the School for the Deaf and Blind Campus Police, Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Customs Border Patrol.
