Law enforcement gets new funding option for active shooter training
from Austin American-Statesman
A law that went into effect at the end of last month has opened a new avenue for public safety agencies to prepare for active shooter and mass casualty incidents across the nation. The POLICE Act — sponsored by two Texans, U.S. Sen John Cornyn and U.S. Rep. John Carter of Round Rock — authorizes agencies to use federal Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, grant money to pay for active shooter response programs, which previously were not covered by the grant.
