IRVINE, Calif. (KTLA) — Recent school shootings have led one local law enforcement agency to brush up on their tactics in active shooter situations.

Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies spent Friday morning training at an abandoned Irvine school.

“Our scenario for today’s training, deputies are going to receive a call of shots fired at a local elementary school,” said Dep. Shane Millhollon.

The OCSD now keeps their active shooter tactics under wraps.

“What we’ve learned from recent active shooter scenarios is these active shooter suspects have learned tactics and techniques from prior active shooting scenarios. So we would like to keep our tactics not publicized to protect our deputies, but also to be more effective when we deploy on a school, ” Millhollon said.

In addition to increased active shooter training scenarios, law enforcement officials in Orange County and across the country are starting to learn the layouts of their local schools.
