Local police say they're prepared for school shootings

With tragic situations like the Florida school shooting, you may worry about what would happen if there were a similar case closer to home.

Local school leaders and police departments are constantly evaluating what needs to be done should the unimaginable happen.

We talked to state police about steps they take to keep everyone safe.

"We do talk to schools and we do different table top exercises," Tpr. Jeff Petucci, from Pennsylvania State Police, said. "We have done active shooter drills at schools within our area of jurisdiction and we work with other law enforcement agencies as well to make sure that everyone is on the same page when we are responding to that type of situation." 

We're told active shooting drills are constantly being done in our region.
