BELDEN, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo police worked with Itawamba Community College Friday in a mock active shooter drill.
The drill was held from approximately 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Jan. 18, on the Belden campus.
This type of drill allowed police and ICC officials to test their readiness if such a situation was to ever occur.
The drill’s scenario was of a hostage-barricade situation with an active shooter.
Even though this was just a drill, officials looked at it as a way to learn and better themselves.
“The college works hard to make sure that we’re prepared for any type of emergency that arises,” said ICC President Jay Allen.
