Sheriff’s office conducts “active shooter” training for SW MN churches

Some authorities in southern Minnesota are hosting a training this afternoon (Monday) on security at churches.

The “Active Shooter Training Seminar for the Faith Community” is being conducted by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.  The training is designed for Ministers and other church leaders, with discussions on active shooter scenarios, warning signs to watch for, how to respond, Run-Hide-Fight techniques, and more.

The training starts at 1pm in the Dodge County Board Room in the Government Services Building in Mantorville.

Sheriff Scott Rose says it was organized after a number of Ministers asked for safety/security training for their churches in response to last month’s shooting at a church in Texas where 26 people were killed.
