LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) – Members of the New York
State Police and other law enforcement agencies are wrapping up two days
of training for responding to “active shooter” situations.

The training session began Wednesday and ends Thursday at the former W. Alton Jones Cell Science Center in Lake Placid.

State police officials say the training uses
simulations to train officers how to enter a building and confront a
person firing a weapon. The training includes classroom presentations as
well as realistic exercises involving room and stairwell clearing
techniques.

Instructors from the New York State Preparedness Training Center are leading the sessions.
