Winnsboro police participate in active shooter training


The halls of Winnsboro schools were filled with officers Tuesday as they participated in active shooter training.

Winnsboro Police Department conducted an active shooter training at Memorial Middle School while students were on break. The department warned residents not to be alarmed since the exercise was only for training. Students and faculty were not present for the exercise.

WPD posted photos of the exercise on their Facebook page, saying, "These men and women worked hard today ... hope we never need this training. A huge thank you to Lt. Rusty Stillwaghoner, My. Mark Estes and Det. Sgt. Brian Shurtleff from Sulphur Springs Police Department for conducting the training for our officers and Chief Hettich today!"
