Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy releases video safety training guide for educators
The Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy released the first 10 videos from its free training series: Active Shooter Response: An Educator's Guide. Fifteen additional videos will be released to complete the series later this summer. The series is available on the Attorney General’s website.
The videos are accompanied with a companion guide to assist in leading discussions at school in-service trainings.
Use of the videos by school personnel is highly encouraged. When viewing the video series and using the companion handbook, it is important to always refer to your local safety plan. Each district and school is different. School administrators should be careful to ensure their plans consider the information presented in the video series and make choices that are best for their schools and communities. Law enforcement, parents and older students are invited to access this valuable resource as well.
