Multiple area law enforcement agencies responded to the Spoon River College 2nd Floor Auditorium in response to a simulated active shooter incident Wednesday.
More than 100 Macomb Police Department, McDonough County Sheriffâ€™s Department, District 14 Illinois State Police 14 and Western Illinois University Office of Public Safety personnel participated in the annual Rapid Response Training (RRT) this week.
The four-day training program was made up of two phases – one for command personnel and another for responding officers – and focused on an active shooter incident at Spoon River College. Rapid response trainers, certified through the United States Attorneyâ€™s Office, and master firearms instructors from all four agencies facilitated the training.
