SWAT officers train at local high school

You might have seen law enforcement activity near Paso Robles High School on Wednesday. It was all part of a training exercise.

The San Luis Obispo Regional SWAT team held a training on the school's campus.

The training is aimed at helping school staff know what to do if the SWAT team has to deploy on campus.

Seven local police agencies make up the team.

"Each agency is training for the active shooter incident because now what we've learned from history is that there is no time to lockdown a site and wait for a tactical team, and all patrol officers are now prepared to go mitigate the situation, maybe by themselves," Commander Jake Miller, SWAT Tactical Commander.

He says the SWAT team trains every month to make sure they are ready for an emergency.
