How to Become a Bounty Hunter



FBI to Help Train 30,000 Officers to Handle Active Shooters in Public Places

The FBI plans to train 30,000 officers nationwide how to handle an active shooter in schools, businesses and other public places, the USA Today reports.

More than 200 agents are helping with the training, which was hatched after the 2012 Newton, Conn., school massacre.

“We have found a block of training that, in a short period of time, provides the best investment in saving lives,” FBI Deputy Director Mark Giuliano said.

The training, which is in partnership with Texas State University, is critical and aimed at shaving time to respond, identify and “eliminate” suspects.

“If we don’t get the initial response right, it’s always going to be a train wreck,” said Terry Nichols, assistant director of Texas State’s Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center. “You have to stop the threat. That means urging first responding officers to move quickly toward the gunfire. That’s hard to do, even if you are a law enforcement officer.”
