Northeast Oklahoma law enforcement get lesson on handling a school lock down

Updated:

Northeast Oklahoma law enforcement and school officials are getting a lesson in how to handle a school lock down.

A school resource officer who's experienced a school crisis first-hand shared her lessons with those who need to respond.

Security cameras on campuses are just a small part of keeping kids safe.  Dealing with the media, who should call 911 and how to evacuate a building were a few topics covered.

The chief coordinating the training says its been needed for years.

"Every school in American should be able to do this, to be more proactive than reactive, putting up that layer of security and training officers, more training school administration," says Police Chief Tony Wiseley of the Fairland Police Department and the Eastern Shawnee Tribal Police Department.

School administrators are comparing plans.

Officials in Miami say they hope to add a student resource officer at the middle school next year, while in Fairland, efforts are underway to add surveillance cameras.
