A free training course for educators is being held Thursday in Hamilton County.
The Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy's 'Active Shooter Training Response for Educators Course' is behind held at the Hamilton County Educational Service Center.
The course is one of several across the state that are being held in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education. The courses will provide educators with insight on how to identify the actions of active shooters before they commit to crimes. The course will also include training on how to respond in a school shooting situation.
"The goal of these courses is to give our teachers and school staff ideas on what to look for and how to respond if the unthinkable happens," said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. "We hope our educators never have to apply this training, but we want them to be prepared."
