Fort Campbell MPs conduct active shooter training

 

Written by Sgt. Leejay Lockhart
101st Sustainment Brigade

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Two Fort Campbell police cars sped with their blue lights on to a barracks complex off of Fifth Street. As the cars came to a stop, four military police exited their vehicles, and rushed for the building. They stacked up at the side door, not knowing what was waiting for them inside of the building.

The Soldiers were one of multiple groups of military police taking part in an active shooter scenario during the Military Police’s law enforcement training December 5th at Fort Campbell. Lurking inside the building in its dark halls were a group of role players from the 163rd Military Police Detachment and members of the Fort Campbell Special Reaction Team – the military equivalent of a SWAT team along with a trainer from the Department of the Army civilian police.

Military police with the 716th Military Police Battalion, supported by the 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, subdue a role player during an active shooter training exercise Dec. 5 at Fort Campbell. The scenarios try to divide the MPs attention and split them up into smaller groups. (Sgt. Leejay Lockhart | 101st Sust. Bde.)
