ROSEBURG, Ore. — The Roseburg Police Department will be holding an in-service training for police officers during Roseburg School District’s Summer Break. The training will take place Monday, June 19th

The training will be held at the Roseburg High School and officers will participate in scenario based training. Continuing education hours keep officers current with their certification requirements mandated by the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training and to maintain a professional level of service. 

In the interest of public notification and awareness, community members should be aware that the scenario based training will look like an active shooter/active threat response. Simulated gunfire, yelling and a general police presence may be observed by community members in the area. Signage will be present indicating a training exercise is in session. 

“The Roseburg Police Department provides multiple scenario based trainings throughout the year for our officers. As such, we believe it is important to train our officers in the response of active threats. The use of scenario based training provides our officers with the most realistic training possible and helps to develop them professionally in order to better serve our community,” said Sgt Daniel Allen. “We are thankful to the Roseburg School District for their support and hospitality in hosting this important training session.”

For the safety of the community and officers, the school campus will be closed to the public during the training session, which starts at 8:00 am and will end at 6:00 pm.
