Standard Heating donates a truck to Hennepin Technical College for anti-terrorist training for Law Enforcement
On Wednesday 4, 2014, James Meehan, Lab Assistant from the Department of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Education Center at Hennepin Technical College came to Standard Heating & Air Conditioning to pick up a truck that the company donated to the institution. The vehicle will be used for Law Enforcement anti-terrorist training.
Last year, Hennepin Technical College’s Brooklyn Park campus was the site for training exercises conducted by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office (HSCO) to help first responders prepare for an active shooter event. This year, they will plan to use Standard Heating’s truck to host anti-terrorist training for Police Officers.
Recent articles explain that there will be a wave of police officers retiring due to changes in regulations. So, today more than ever, it’s important that our Law Enforcement personnel is trained on how to react to all types of situations, such as terrorists driving a van.
