About 30 SWAT members from across the state convened to practice their repelling, building clearing and tactical action plans.
“We want them to be at the top of their game,” State Sgt. Vonn Schleicher said. Its necessary we put an investment in these folks.
State police work in cooperation with OSP, which operates an office out of the university. The SWAT team responds to hostages, an active shooter or someone who has barricaded them in a building.
“SWAT would respond in the case of an emergency and we would want them to be familiar with the area,” Schleicher said.
