Active Assailant drill to be held at Norris City Annex school Monday, Dec. 12

On Monday, December 12th, 2016 at approximately 2:15, the White County Sheriff’s Department, Enfield Police Department, Carmi Police Department, and the Norris City Police Department will be conducting a mock “active assailant” scenario at the Norris City Annex School in Norris City.  There will be no students present that day due to school being dismissed early.

These types of training drills are necessary and important for both law enforcement and school staff to be as prepared as possible for any type of lock down or active assailant incident.

Again, there will be no students present during this training exercise, and the public is being notified of this training in advance so they should not be alarmed at the presence of several law enforcement officers at the school during this time or if they should hear dispatch calls on the radio frequency.
