UAS JSHS Staff are Provided Active Shooter and Lockdown Training

State Trooper Gives Utica Academy of Science Staff Active Shooter Training

Friday, January 13th, 2023: Utica Academy of Science junior-senior high school staff and faculty had State Trooper and School and Community Outreach Coordinator (SCOCs) Brian Derochie provide Active Shooter and Lockdown Training. New York State helped set the benchmark for school safety. As part of the comprehensive strategy, each region has SCOCs. The state trooper website describes SCOCs as: “maintain a statewide presence and present to schools, community and business groups on a variety of topics. The SCOCs are well versed in the intricacies of school safety and security, crime prevention and deterrence, and effective crisis response.”

Trooper Derochie had a chance to provide updates regarding events and new methods and answer questions from UASCS staff about school safety. It was a very productive event and a part of the effort for SANY to set up a benchmark concerning school safety and security.
