On July 17th, local media got a rare, inside look at how the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office prepares for an active shooting incident.
It was all hands on deck, as our SWAT team, bomb squad, K-9 and aerial units came together to undergo a realistic active shooter simulation at Strawberry Crest High School in Dover.
The training exercise was our way of preparing for the upcoming school year, to ensure that our office is prepared for the worst case scenario.
In addition to multiple helicopter landings on the roof of the school, live paint rounds were used inside the school during the exercise.
