NYS Troopers thank local high schoolers

Posted:

FONDA, N.Y. – New York State Police are thanking the students at Fonda-Fultonville High School who volunteered for active shooter training.

According to State Police, the training was conducted over the course of two days. Several students volunteered to act as role players during the training. Police say the participation of the students was important because it helped to provide true simulation of a real incident.

"The New York State Police are working closely with school administrators to ensure we are prepared for incidents such as an active shooter in a school. I would like to thank Principal David Halloran for allowing us to utilize his facility for this training, which was an overwhelmingly positive experience for our troopers. I would also like to thank the student volunteers, who gave up their own personal time to work with us," said Captain Douglas Keyer, Troop G Zone 3 Commander.
