SWAT Team Performs Realistic Hijacking Drill on School bus Filled with Children

ROSSFORD, OH -- Police staged a school bus hijacking with children on board in order to allow a SWAT team to perform an explosion-packed rescue drill.

"I just do what he says, gotta stay calm," says one young girl riding the school bus.

Thank you for your concern for the students and children within our school district and community. I too would be concerned for any child who unwittingly was held hostage, tied up and threatened at gunpoint. The problem is: none of this happened.

This was a well planned training exercise in which all participants (children and bus driver included) knew well in advance that they were participating in a training exercise to prepare for such an event to take place - which is very possible in our world today.

Each student and participant signed waivers that acknowledged their participation in this training. Unfortunately, some of the information released to the media portrayed this as an event in which police and school officials took advantage of innocent children who had no idea that this was a mock incident. This is not true. As stated previously, EVERYONE was well aware that this was a training exercise for school personnel, students, law enforcement and the public.

The Rossford Police Department is very proud to be part of a community that prepares for such incidents, even though we hope we never encounter them. Our proactive approach to counter-terrorism, active killers and other such incidents hopefully will save lives in the future...especially the lives of our children.

Please feel free to forward this message along to all of those who have found it necessary to chastise this training exercise without first asking questions and gathering facts - as your information is wrong. You may also want to note that today (August 19th) was the first day of school and the day of the training exercise was last Wednesday (August 14th) so we would have no children riding buses other than for this training exercise in which they voluntarily participated in.

I would also like to share with you that the youth pictured on the website is the son of a Sheriff's Dispatcher who, again, was well aware of the training.

72240 My previous message is meant for the many people who misunderstood the information regarding this training exercise who believe that the little children had no idea that this exercise was about to take place on their school bus. Every student (ages 17 & 18 - High School Seniors) signed up to be part of the training. No live ammunition was used during the event. I can understand how one might have thought the police stormed a bus on the way to school without advising the children or parents, but again - this is simply a misunderstanding. The students did not know all of the details, bit by bit, as to what might take place during the exercise, but they were well aware that they too were actors for the scenario. I hope that this information helps in clarifying any confusion as I have received multiple emails regarding how outraged some people across the country are - believing that the police would pull a stunt on unsuspecting children. Again, that was not the case here. We love our children more than to ever do such a thing to them. I have noticed that anti-government and anti-police blogs and websites are portraying this event as police terrorizing kids in the name of safety, but the Rossford Police and our neighboring law enforcement agencies that took part in this training exercise would not and do not operate in such a manner. EVERYBODY was well informed as to what was about to take place. Lastly, school started August 19th, this event took place on August 14th - no children would be riding a bus to or from school during the time of this exercise...they were on the bus voluntarily to participate as actors for training. Thank you for your understanding and support.

71205 Sick and twisted any way around it, Chief. Military drills by local cops. Totally sick.

70210 You guys are idiots. The officers could have been shot by an arm citizen trying to protect the kids.

144160 How many times have we heard of military personnel being killed "in a training excercise"? I want our local police departments and SWAT teams to be trained but to use children as props and training devices is irresponsible and apprehensible. These children should have never been involved in this. They're very lucky that a responsible armed citizen didn't step in take some lethal action. Absolutely unbelievable!!!

68113 It is difficult to tolerate the information that such drills are necessary. We would prefer to remain convinced that our children are safe as soon as the bus comes to pick them up. But the events of the last several years have proven that this is not always the case. So we must prepare. And while I cannot foresee a cause at this point in time to run this drill with the general student population, I believe it was necessary to include real students. It is important to note that the students recruited for this drill were mature young adults who were either legally able to sign their own consent forms or whose parents consented to their voluntary participation. No young, immature child who could be overwhelmed by emotional or mental distress participated in this drill; furthermore, if the young adults felt themselves in need of counseling afterwards, I am sure it was provided.

The reality is that this drill was meant not only for teachers and law enforcement personnel, but also for the students themselves. Children know far more than adults give them credit for; they need to understand what would happen just as much as adults do. (Naturally we need to temper this information according to their maturity level.) Students can be leaders and partners, and we would do well to remember they are not always mere pawns in a situation beyond our control. Helping older students especially to better understand what their role would be in such a scenario enables “the good guys” to work together more effectively. Having these young adults participate at the very least bolsters the trusting relationship that students and law enforcement personnel would need to have if the situation were to ever occur in real life. Since we cannot shelter our children from all evil, let us, with caution and regard to their maturity, prepare them for these situations that we hope will never occur.

Thank you, Chief, for conducting this exercise. Despite the swarm of negative responses, please know that there are some who are proud of you and your department. I hope you will never need to use in real life what you learned during this drill.
