Police To Hold School Shooter Training At Carolina Beach Elementary School; Volunteers Needed

By WILLARD KILLOUGH III

CAROLINA BEACH - The Carolina Beach Police Department will be conducting Rapid Deployment School Shooter Training at the Carolina Beach Elementary School during Spring Break, March 25th through the 29th.
The training concerns scenarios dealing with emergency situations of an armed individual on school grounds.
Carolina Beach Police Detective Derek Moore said last week the training is being held when kids are on Spring Break to practice in a realistic environment.
Citizens are encouraged to volunteer their time as victims, witnesses, staff, suspects and other roles to help create a detailed training scenario.
The Carolina Beach Town Council approved funding an officer to be stationed at the school for the remainder of this school year following concerns raised in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Detective Moore said citizens interested in participating should call him at 910-508-3975. No calls after 8pm.
Detective Moore said the training will provide a valuable realistic environment to train officers in response techniques.
