UAPD holds drill to prepare for active shooter event

How the university prepares for potential threats on campus.

When active shooters targeted El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, police arrived within minutes of the first calls to 911. Across the country, law enforcement agencies train for those worst-case scenarios where lives depend on a quick response. This week, police at the University of Arizona conducted a drill on campus to test their preparedness. UAPD Chief Brian Seastone and UA Dean of Students Kendal Washington White joined Lorraine Rivera in studio to discuss the impact of these drills, as well as other factors the university considers when ensuring campus safety.
