Active Shooter Training In La Crosse
UW-L and Western Technical College have never had an active shooter on
campus; however, a UW-L student was arrested and apprehended in April after carrying an unloaded shotgun on campus. And, in May, police responded to what was reported as shots fired at Western, but the noise turned out to be part of a class project.
Training on these issue continues today through Thursday for the scenario of an active shooter. Mike Killian says law enforcement , fire and dispatchers are all a part of the training.
Killian is the lead trainer.....he says despite the fact that it wasn’t an emergency situation at Western, it was still very eye-opening for police officers and other campus security and staff.
