July 23—More than 200 people, including 70 volunteers, responded to a radioactive crime scene on Saturday—for a training exercise.
“I’d rather do 100 of these exercises than one real incident,” WVU Police Chief Bob Roberts said.
The drill, which started before sunrise, was at the old Medical Center apartments on Van Voorhis Drive. It featured local, state and federal agencies. Officials said during the drill, they entered the building and encountered an active shooter situation. The drill also called for radioactive material to be found in the building.
