Plymouth State University’s Criminal Justice Organization (CJO) is partnering with the Tilton Police Department, the New Hampshire State Troopers, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security and various local law enforcement agencies to launch a five-hour, realtime, multi-agency Critical Incident Active Shooter Response Simulation at the Tanger Outlets in Tilton, NH on October 23rd. The purpose of the simulation is to mimic an active shooter incident in a crowded venue, requiring multi-agency coordination. Plymouth State University students will be briefed regarding the training exercise, and will take part in the training, playing the roles of civilians, the injured, and hostages, providing a realistic backdrop for law enforcement training. Following the event, on October 25, law enforcement personnel involved in the simulation will attend an event sponsored by the Criminal Justice Organization (CJO) to debrief students, explain the response, and answer questions regarding critical incident response.
