WVU Police Train College of Education and Human Services Students For Shootings

MORGANTOWN -

WVU Police are working with future teachers to be prepared for any kind of emergency.

Before College of Education and Human Services students went off for spring break last week, WVU Police gave them a crash course in preparing for emergencies ranging from weather to a mass shooting.

Police chief Bob Roberts said the students will learn the information and school protocols when they become teachers, but said being proactive is always a good thing.

"If you've been around our police department, we're proactive and preventative," said Chief Roberts. This is one of those ways to be proactive, get the information out so the students know when they go to their first job what questions to ask, what to look for, how to handle those kinds of situations. It's sad that we have to teach these things, but it's a reality."

WVU Police hope to grow the program in the future.
