Kentucky State Police launches statewide Safe Schools Active Shooter Training Program

Kentucky State Police launched a statewide Active Shooter Training Program (ASTP) as part of a Safe School Initiative developed by the agency for the purpose of heightening security practices for maximum school safety. The KSP, with input from school administrators across the state, has developed a program aimed at assisting Kentucky schools on how to respond effectively during an active shooter incident. This program is designed to provide four levels of assistance to aid school officials in establishing or complimenting their current emergency management response plans.  These levels include, on-site visits, target hardening, lock down drills and hands-on role-playing scenarios that simulate an active shooter incident within a school setting.
