HV officers undergo active shooting training in Ossining
Officers in the Hudson Valley underwent active shooting training Thursday in Ossining.
Dispatchers released a fake 911 call about an active shooter at a school, and officers from Ossining, Briarcliff and Croton responded as if the danger was real.
Ossining Police Chief Kevin Sylvester says his officers are working with neighboring departments to make sure everyone is on the same page should they come face to face with an active shooter.
Just this week, a teacher and an 8-year-old boy died when a shooter opened fire inside an elementary school in San Bernardino, California, before turning the gun on himself. Another student was shot but is expected to survive.
The training exercises will continue both Friday and Monday to make sure officers across all three departments are up to speed in those situations.
