State releases video on active shooter incidents
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Department of Homeland Security has released a video that instructs people on what to do in the event of a shooting like the one at an elementary school in Connecticut.
Gov. Robert Bentley asked officials at the agency to develop a plan for dealing with such incidents.
A spokesman for the governor, Jeremy King, says the video was an old production by the Houston Police Department. It was released in Alabama with a short introduction by Spencer Collier, the director of the state Homeland Security agency.
The video depicts a shooting inside an office.
Other measures taken include additional training for law enforcement and continued use of a hotline and website where citizens can report suspicious people or situations.
