There were no real “bad guys” loose on the Santa Rosa Junior College campus yesterday, but five dozen real police officers were there to train in tracking and capturing some simulated shooters.
The SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team training exercises took place behind yellow police taped barriers, well out of sight of any members of the public and even the few reporters allowed in. But Santa Rosa Police Sgt. Mike Tosti says the citiznery will benefit from what they could not see.
SRJC Police Cadet Corrine Linder, who volunteers to be part of the emergency response scenarios, said she felt her regular training and experience had equipped her well for the day’s exercises.
