On Thursday and Friday last week, several law enforcement agencies descended upon Trigg County High School to stop a school shooting. Thankfully, it was only a simulation.

Every year, the Cadiz Police Department organizes active shooter tactical training scenarios on the Trigg County School District campus in order to better respond to actual shooting incidents.

“This is about saving lives,” said Major Duncan Wiggins of the Cadiz Police Department, who was assigned as the training director. “The whole purpose of the training and the situations that we put our officers through is to save lives.”

The training, Wiggins said, is a cooperative effort between 28 members of different agencies – the Cadiz Police Department, Trigg County Sheriff’s Office, Kentucky State Police and Trigg County EMS (Emergency Medical Service) – to learn how to deal with an active-shooter-type situation, or a critical-incident-type situation.
