PICKAWAY COUNTY -- Central Ohio sheriff's deputies spent much of Tuesday learning how to approach -- and stop --possible school shooters.
Twenty-two Pickaway County deputies were trained by Franklin County S.W.A.T. officers on the best practices to employ in the event of an active shooting incident inside a school.
Trainees were transported to Westfall High School, where they rushed in carrying mock rifles, in response to different scenarios in the halls and in the classrooms.
Twenty-two additional Pickaway County deputies will go through the training tomorrow.
Sheriff Robert Radcliff told ABC 6/FOX 28 anyone who might be called on to respond to a school shooting will undergo the training session.
Later this week, the Sheriff will meet with the county's school superintendents to evaluate their school safety plans.
