The Zanesville Police Department Special Response Team spoke to students at OUZ and Zane State for Public Safety Week.
The team consisting of two snipers, two negotiators, and ten operators. Members were present to answer questions; they also went through a role play scenario to show students what an entry into a barricade or hostage situation consists of.
Members of the Special Response team are required to have 3 years of patrol experience. By speaking with the students today, they hope to make the public more aware of the high measure of security our community has.
"We hope to just give them a little comfort that if something does happen, they know help is on the way, and that it will be a quick response," said Mike Brown, Team Commander.
All students, employees and visitors are welcome to attend public safety week at OUZ Zane State. You can find a list of scheduled events at www.Zanestate.Edu/safetyweek
