Tulsa police cadets undergo active shooter training Friday

TULSA, Okla. — Twenty nine apprentice police officers in Tulsa Police Academy underwent active shooter training at a school on Friday.

Tulsa police said every academy class goes through active shooter training, which includes instruction, learning tactical skills, and simulations of real-life scenarios.

All Tulsa police officers also receive updated training and learn new tactics around active shooter scenarios during their in service training, which happens yearly, Tulsa police said in a press release.

This training has been scheduled for months, but is also timely due to the recent school shooting in Texas.
