Charleston Police seek people to help with training exercise

May 18, 2019

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The Charleston Police Department is looking for people to participate in a critical incident scenario for training purposes.

WCBD-TV reports Charles Francis of the Charleston Police Department says the scenario will consist of multiple suspects acting in a coordinated active shooter incident. For the scenario to be successful, he says they’re looking for role players to act like innocent bystanders to make the training as realistic as possible.

Francis says the opportunity allows CPD to interact and involve the community and allows the public to feel what a scenario of this magnitude could be like.

The scenario will be staged at the Citadel Campus on Thursday, May 23, from 8 a.m. to Noon.

Anyone willing to participate is asked to email LT. Murray at murrays@charleston-sc.gov.
