On Tuesday the Kentucky State Police launched a statewide Active Shooter Training Program (ASTP) as part of a Safe School Initiative. The KSP, along with school administrators from across the state, has developed a program aimed at assisting Kentucky schools on how to respond effectively during an active shooter incident.

This program has four levels of assistance to aid school officials in establishing their current emergency management response plans. These levels include, on-site visits, target hardening, lock down drills and hands-on role-playing scenarios that simulate an active shooter incident within a school setting.

“I don’t think anyone will forget December 14, 2012 when twenty innocent children, under the age of seven, were killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting,” says Brewer. “This tragic incident, accompanied by several others, has created a national conversation about the importance of safety in our schools.”

Tonight at 5 and 6 Mark Stitz takes a further look into what parents need to know about the program.
