An armed suspect scenario.
Parkersburg Police train officers with hands on experience.
Fake bullets, fake victims, but all real stress.
In teams of four the men train in several situations inside Parkersburg High School.
The school is on spring break.
Lt. Greg Collins says it is about being realistic and training every officer, knowing that the first men to be called during a school shooting situation - no matter a detective, a rookie or road officer - they are going in.
It is all about getting everyone on the same page.
The training happens all week with both Parkersburg and Vienna Police.
Also the pro officers in the schools are training, including the new officers that will be put into the middle schools as well.
