INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) recently unveiled two new school bus safety videos that depict the unarmed responses of a school bus driver to active shooter scenarios.

The videos, produced through a joint effort of the Indiana State Police, Indiana Department of Education, School Transportation Association of Indiana and the Mooresville Consolidated School Corp., are intended to be used as a training tool for school bus drivers to reduce potential injuries and fatalities that could result during violent acts.

“The Indiana State Police is committed to the safety of our children and school bus drivers,” CVED Sgt. Chris Kath said. “If a violent act is encountered on a school bus, a plan and preparation of actions could be the tools needed to survive. Be prepared to take action to keep yourself and our schoolchildren safe.”

Both videos are available here.

The information contained in the videos is neither intended to be, nor represented as, professional or legal advice, division officials said. If a school or a school bus driver has specific issues or questions concerning local, state or federal laws or possible civil or criminal liability, they should consult with private legal counsel.

For more information on this topic or for a live presentation of the "Safe Schools/Unarmed Response to an Active Shooter," Indiana districts and operations can contact their local State Police post or the Indiana State Police school bus safety coordinator here.

I am the lead trainer for a school district in Colorado. How can I obtain the videos? Can you transmit or is there a web address? My telephone number is 719-234-1427. Thank you for your help.
