Law enforcement conducts active threat training at Park Elementary SchoolResidents may see and hear police activity Thursday and Friday30002000Scott Blackwell, center, with the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office, and one of several instructors, watches law enforcement participate in active threat training on Thursday at Park Elementary School as they make their way down the hallway clearing rooms and looking for “shooters.” (Jerry McBride/Durango Herald)Law enforcement agencies across Southwest Colorado sent officers to participate in active threat training this week at Park Elementary School in Durango. Those in the neighborhood can expect police vehicles parked on the premises, officers in tactical gear conducting exercises inside and outside the school, and signs advising that training is in progress. The sounds of shouting, airsoft weapons and the popping of a starter pistol will also be audible near the school, said Karla Sluis, spokeswoman for Durango School District 9-R.Sluis said that members of the school district’s safety department have gone door-to-door with flyers notifying residents around Park Elementary School about the training.29102151Law enforcement from several agencies participate in active threat training Thursday at Park Elementary School. (Jerry McBride/Durango Herald)Hosted by the Durango Police Department and the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office, this week’s voluntary training invited officers from law enforcement agencies across a five-county region of Southwest Colorado encompassing La Plata, Archuleta, San Juan, Montezuma and Dolores counties.0VideoYouTube480360La Plata County Sheriff’s Office deputy Durango Police Department Deputy Mike Latham, lead instructor for this week's training, said Wednesday and the first half of Thursday were mostly preparatory, teaching officers the school’s layout and devising scenarios, whereas the latter half of Thursday and Friday residents should anticipate some noise as active threat scenarios play out.30001932Law enforcement from several agencies participate in active threat training Thursday at Park Elementary School. (Jerry McBride/Durango Herald)Latham said active threat training teaches officers proper protocol during active threat scenarios, especially in densely populated areas where they have become increasingly common.Park Elementary School is not the only Durango School District facility law enforcement has conducted active threat training. Latham said schools lend themselves well to this sort of training because, “It gives us all kinds of doors to work on, different rooms, different scenarios we can run. We can pretend it’s a mall with nice big corridors, we can even pretend it’s an outdoor area in the gymnasium.”Latham has participated in active threat training multiple times in the past and described the drills as exhilarating and nerve-wracking. He said one of the training’s main goals is teaching officers how to manage stress and remain calm with lives on the line.30002093Law enforcement from several agencies participate in active threat training Thursday at Park Elementary School. (Jerry McBride/Durango Herald)“I take a pulse oximeter in the morning and get a baseline on their heart rates,” Latham said. “And sometimes, just before they’re about to engage a threat, I say ‘Timeout.’ Put it (the oximeter) on there, and their heart rate’s skyrocketed to 140, 150, 160 just in training.”30002050Law enforcement from several agencies participate in active threat training Thursday at Park Elementary School. (Jerry McBride/Durango Herald)Latham said throughout his career active threat training has evolved to become safer for officers and fall in line with increasingly professional police standards.“When I first started we were just running into halls and rooms hoping for the best,” Latham said. “Now the tactic is still to get there, still stop the taking of lives, but tactics are much better than they were 20 years ago.”30002125Law enforcement from several agencies participate in active threat training Thursday at Park Elementary School.
