CINCINNATI (AP) -- Cincinnati's police chief wants to provide additional safety training to schools for responding to potential school shootings.
Chief James Craig said Thursday he plans to talk with the Cincinnati Public Schools superintendent about expanding training for administrators and teachers at all school levels.
District spokeswoman Janet Walsh says the 33,000-student district's principals are trained in emergency response and all schools have safety plans and drills. She says the district welcomes opportunities to collaborate with police and others on possible ways of extending that training.
State officials have said Ohio's police training academy also will train educators to deal with a shooter.
The plans follow last week's Connecticut massacre in which a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and fatally shot 20 students and six adults before killing himself.
