GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – ECU law enforcement wants to stay one step ahead in case of tragedy.
Officers participated in active shooter training on Friday.
On average, there’s at least one mass shooting in the U.S. every day.
In light of recent shootings, the officers practiced real life scenarios where they had to act quickly.
Lieutenant Chris Sutton said with school about to return to session, there is no better time to be on top of the game.
“With students coming back you increase your population which also increases your risk of having any type of threat that they could have to face so this really helps for our officers to sharpen their skills,” said Sutton.
ECU’s officers went through similar training in May.
