Employees with the State of Wyoming received Active Shooter Training today in Cheyenne

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - In the wake of a number of mass shootings last year, Governor Matt Mead requested active shooter training be made available to all State of Wyoming employees. The Wyoming Highway Patrol along with The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, offered the training yesterday and today (Jan. 11-12) at the Herschler Building in Cheyenne. “The safety of state employees is a big concern for me as governor,” said Governor Mead. “This training teaches employees how to react– so they have this knowledge if they are faced with an active shooter situation.” The instruction was offered by state troopers and members of Office of Homeland Security in four hours training blocks that focused on identifying signs when someone may become violent, what to do during a shooting, and how to respond to law enforcement when they arrive on the scene. At the Governor’s request, the training will be offered to state employees at additional times and locations to be scheduled. #shortgo #news
