Officers with the Irmo Police Department will be conducting active shooter training at the Irmo Elementary School from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on July 27.
Members of the public will see police cars with blue lights activated and hear the sounds of blanks being fired in the area of the school, a press release stated.
“We conduct active shooter training on a regular basis and usually do so during firearms qualification. However, an opportunity arose to use the school so we have developed some scenario training for our officers.” Said Chief Brian Buck.
Police have taken steps to ensure the public is not affected by the training, the release stated.
