On August 7th and 10th, 2013 the San Leandro Police Department conducted "Active Shooter Response" training at San Leandro High School. The two-day course focused on response to an active shooter incident using a unified approach. Paramedics Plus, Alameda County Fire Department and the San Leandro Unified School District participated in this training.
Lt Randall Brandt stated, "Our staff has been conducting active shooter training since the 1990's and we understand the importance of conducting this type of training to include all the stakeholders in public safety. This collaborative training exercise will continue to prepare our staff for a potential critical incident that may develop in our community."
San Leandro Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Mike McLaughlin stated, "I am pleased to see such a proactive approach to the active shooter training being conducted by the San Leandro Police Department. On a daily basis San Leandro Unified School District is responsible for the safety of 8,500 students K-12 and over 3,500 adult students. As leaders we need to be proactive in our planning and implementation of current safety techniques. The 'Active Shooter Response' training at the San Leandro High School is just one example of how the partnership between the San Leandro Police and the San Leandro Unified School District is forming to provide a safe environment for all of our students and community members in the City of San Leandro."
