Cops and schools ready for trouble

Door County law enforcement agencies and school districts have plans in place to deal with intruders or other emergencies.  And they're asking for public assistance to make it easier for them to respond in a crisis.  Sheriffs Department Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says in an emergency situation at school parents should monitor their phones and news media outlets for the latest information and stay at home.



McCarty also says schools hold drills so students and school staff can take cover and take action, if necessary.



McCarty also says communication is vital between school officials and police agencies during a crisis situation.  So parents are being reminded not to call the schools and risk tying up phone lines or call their children's' mobile phones, which could tip off an intruder to where they may be hiding.
