The West Liberty Police Department and the Morgan County Sheriffs
Office received firearms training Friday, March 30, 2007, from Sgt.
Scott Adkins, WLPD Firearms Instructor. The training focused on
rapid deployment, or shooter involved crisis situations. All WLPD
officers were present, as well as Morgan County Deputy Sheriff Kenny
"Included in the firearms training was a review of the K.R.S.
(Kentucky Revised Statutes) regarding "Use of Force" and a
written exam followed. In
addition all present were introduced to written material outlining
several tactics or practices to use when responding to shooting
situations, firing range exercises which included: move/shoot exercises,
stoppage drills, weapons transitioning and multiple target engagement,
as well as time at the Morgan Co. High School familiarizing officers
with the layout of the building and tactics on entering and engaging
shooter(s).", said Sgt. Adkins. "All WLPD officers
should now have a basic understanding of tactics that may be used and an
idea of what to expect when responding to a shooting situation."
