AG Holder urges focus on training police for mass shootings

PHILADELPHIA - October 21, 2013

The attorney general says authorities don't always have the luxury of time to get their most highly trained officers on the scene.

Holder was speaking Monday to a law enforcement conference meeting in Philadelphia.

Holder says that in the past decade, the Justice Department has helped train 50,000 front-line officers and over 3,000 local, state and federal agency heads on how to respond to active shooters.
