GREEN BAY - Law enforcement agencies in Brown County are learning new ways to do their jobs.
Nearly 500 officers are training on how to respond to terrorist acts.
The officers used CO2 powered firearms and blanks to practice with Friday. They also wore vests that not only record how many shots they've fired, but whether those shots hit their desired targets and how many times they were hit.
"The equipment allows us to up as close as we can to realism, so they are aware that they could get shot and they could get hit if they do something wrong,” said Lt. Dan Sandberg, Brown County Sheriff’s Department.
The training lasts 16 sessions over two months.
