Calif. lawmaker wants statewide template for active shooters

Changes could be coming to the way officers and medical teams respond to so-called active-shooter scenes under a California lawmaker’s bill

SACRAMENTO — Changes could be coming to the way officers and medical teams respond to so-called active-shooter scenes under a California lawmaker’s bill.

Pomona Assemblyman Freddie Rodriguez has proposed a bill that would create statewide training and protocols for police, fire and emergency medical services. The goal is to have a collaborative template on how to respond to shootings and help victims in need.
