n the wake of a number of mass shootings last year, Governor Matt Mead requested active shooter training be made available to all State of Wyoming employees. The Wyoming Highway Patrol, working with The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (OHS) offered the training on January 11-12 at the Herschler Building in Cheyenne.
The training was given in 4 hour blocks, with instruction offered by state troopers and members of OHS. It focused on identifying signs that someone may become violent, what to do during a shooting and how to respond to law enforcement when they arrive on the scene. At the Governor’s request, the training will be offered to state employees at additional times and locations to be scheduled.
