LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Tippecanoe County Sheriff's deputies are going through active shooter training starting Tuesday, Nov. 27, in downtown Lafayette. Dozens of officers are going through training involving a shooting simulation with paintballs and possible blank ammunition.

Parts of the training may by visible to people in the area. The sessions will be held in the Tippecanoe County Office Building, the County Parking garage, and the courthouse. If training is in progress, there will be well-marked signs and caution tape.

"If we don't give them this type of training they're not going to respond well and they're not going to work together well and to handle a situation like that is really important," said Sgt. Len Halascsak of the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office

The training will start Tuesday and ends Friday. The sessions will go from around noon to 9 p.m. each day.
