The sheriff’s department SWAT, like KPD’s, has not had any major injuries or shootings.
“Knock on wood. I think we had a guy slip on the ice going up to a house. Besides that, we’ve had no major incidents or major injuries,” Hargrove said.
The commander also said his team trains with Kokomo SWAT in case a situation like Columbine or Sandy Hook happens.
“It gets pretty taxing,” he said of the training. “We can’t wait for something bad to happen. We have to have a plan beforehand.”
