TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Deputies in Pima County are helping educators be prepared in the event of an active-shooter situation at southern Arizona schools.
The Pima County Sheriff's Department is hosting the workshop all week at Desert View High School. Administrators, teachers and support staff are taking part in the training.
It will include presentations and real-life scenarios to test skills learned. Desert View drama students will help make the scenarios more realistic.
Educators will also get a chance to see how deputies respond to an active shooter. The goal is to make sure everybody is on the same page and a plan is in place at schools.
There will be an increased law enforcement presence at the school and alarms will sound as part of the workshop.
