Active Killer Training
The Lodi Police Department, in collaboration with the Lodi Fire Department and Adventist Health, conducted an “active killer” training today at Lodi Memorial Hospital. Active killer incidents have increased at an alarming rate over the last several years and preparedness has rapidly become a necessity in today’s society. We are proud of our dedicated officers who trained the teams, providing insight and strategic planning, to ensure all our emergency responders are prepared for an “active killer” situation. Another training will be held at Millswood Middle School next week.
