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.
Rodriguez says the move is in response to the shooting of a TSA agent at LAX in November. The suspect was taken into custody within minutes, but medical crews were unable to get to the agent for nearly half an hour.
