Call it disturbing or sad, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is distributing some information about how to survive an active shooter situation in schools.
The brochure, "Surviving an Active Shooter" will be made physically available through LA county's 70 school districts, the LASD Community College Bureau and through the LASD's 23 patrol stations.
Sheriff Jim McDonnell says:
“We are adopting the same philosophy about threats against our schools as the FBI has about terrorism. One shooting is too many. One victim is unacceptable. Guns are clearly the weapon of choice.
I believe the LASD and schools and community colleges in our geographic area of more than 4,200 square miles, should do all we can to send a strong message to those who threaten our children. We begin by holding people accountable for gun crimes, but also empower our communities by providing information that could save their life and the lives of others.”
