Agencies employ reality-based active shooter training

Officers from the Calloway County Sheriff’s Office, Murray Police Department and Murray State University Police used Calloway County High School Friday to run tactical training exercises, including entry and clearing tactics, hallway tactics and scenario-based simulations. “You don’t do it the old-school way kicking doors and rushing in anymore; that’s some of that Tombstone courage that will get you killed,” CCSO Deputy Troy Doss, who organized the training, explained. “It’s much more academic, thought-out, slow, methodical; and that’s where we’re trying to get everybody on the same page.”
