A brand-new training program is underway in Evansville. It's focused on school and workplace violence.
"We want to bring those people together with law enforcement and public safety to help figure out how we can maybe prevent these things from happening and if they do how can we respond better and save lives," says instructor Don Alwes.
"It made me feel very secure that our teachers are being trained and the students are being trained, or to maybe go, 'Oh we need to review that again,'" says Nancy Mills, the principal at St. Theresa School. "I feel very confident in what we have been doing with our liaison officers, the Evansville Police Department, and what we're doing in our schools."
A workshop leader says things like this can help save so many more people if something happens.
The workshop goes all day again Tuesday.
