Sheriffs/police chiefs - and by extensions their communities - have to be willing to spend more on training. Officers absolutely cannot be proficient at dynamic entry, gunfighting, and hostage/victim rescue without proper (valid, current tactics taught be SMEs), frequent training and practice. If they want their patrol officers to aggress and stop an active shooter such as in a school, they absolutely have to do more. Good training costs time and money.

With low staffing, training time is more precious than ever. Regulatory agencies like POST need to eliminate mandatory training that isn’t there to win fights and solve crimes. Pretty much if it doesn’t require a safety briefing and a first aid kit on site, then it isn’t worth cutting a chunk of time out for.

Pony up.

That governor is a real trophy. He’s angry that he wasn’t given 100% of the hard facts within a day of the incident. Apparently based on the criminal investigations he’s personally conducted of complex, confusing events involving multiple agencies and dozens of witnesses - most of them children of single-digit age - he knows that the Rangers should have it all wrapped all up. What a quack.

I’d be interested to know the SRO chief’s experience, as well as the SROs for the school district. Any experience at a decent-sized PD or SO, perennial school officer, only worked small town with low crime, high speed big city? How much time did he spend as a patrol sergeant and lieutenant before becoming chief? What’s the biggest team he ever supervised?

And what kind of training did the SROs have? Up-to-date training or just the same old same old with low-speed stuff? Do they stay in house or send their guys to top-tier instructors?

I am referring to the reports the IC halted the entry, not the initial team.

The on-scene commander, who is also the Uvalde school district police chief, "believed that it had transitioned from an active shooter to a barricaded subject," McCraw said. "It was the wrong decision. Period. There's no excuse for that," McCraw said of the supervisor's call not to confront the shooter
And no one knows tactics like the highway patrol.

Now the Uvalde police and school district police are reportedly no longer cooperating with the Texas probe into the incident...

That seems pretty unusual to say the least...

Well, when the highway patrol is the investigating agency and they’re clearly out to get the PD - being that their chief already declared that the PD did wrong - they legitimately need to consider that they’re being considered as suspects.
