Henry County Employees- Cambridge, IL
Henry County Detective Joe Bedford asks, “What happens if you walk into the courthouse on a normal day paying taxes and the bell rings, shooter comes in there?” It’s a question area police have already answered. “We don’t train anymore in law enforcement, if this happens. It’s when this happens,” Bedford tells us. And now, officers are training Henry County Courthouse employees using the ALICE Active Shooter Response Program. Alert. Lockdown. Inform. Counter. Evacuate.“You know your mind kind of goes blank at first. But you kind of come back down to Earth, and you realize you should probably get out of wherever this is taking place,” Blake Cinnamon says.
