The Kentucky State Police post in Mayfield has been training school employees in western Kentucky how to respond in a crisis with a special training program that the post created.
The post is conducting training for the other 15 state police posts next week in Frankfort so the material can be taught statewide.
The training includes about an hour in the classroom, then school staff is put through about four scenarios during an additional two hours of training. The staff is given an active-shooter scenario, and White says the training focuses on school staff being the true first line of defense in such a situation.
