The Polk County Sheriff’s Department and Mena Police Department took part in MILO Training, the official name of active shooter training, on Thursday. The program training was under the leadership of Jami Cook, Director of the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training. The program has been in effect for over 12-years and is regularly updated as technology is improved. Officers receive certification in the MILO Program and all officers statewide are required 40-hours of continuous training a year. Mena Police Chief Brandon Martin said that all his officers will have completed their training by the end of the day Thursday. See next week’s edition of The Pulse for the full article.
