BEND, OR -- Public mass shootings are increasingly common in America. Bend Police held its first public Active Shooter training session, Tuesday. Bend PD Training Officer Scott Vincent addressed 50 Tower Theatre volunteers. He stressed awareness. “What looks out of place? What’s outside what I call the arc of normalcy? If you see something, say something. Don’t make excuses for people’s behavior.” He told the crowd, “Thinking ahead and planning really pays dividends when these things happen.”

 

Brad Ruder is the volunteer coordinator for the Tower Theatre. He tells KBND News, “One of the first things I wanted to do was make sure that this particular situation, an Active Shooter situation, that we were prepared as a business to take care of our patrons and our staff.”
