PIGGOTT, AR (KAIT) - Tim Holland, owner of Arkansas Tactical Options, is offering training to help teachers be prepared for active shooter situations.
After recent school threats, administrators at the Piggott School District reached out to Arkansas Tactical Options.
The group said they were interested in training for things like how to disarm an individual with a weapon and defensive tactics.
Holland says he felt offering the courses free of charge to the Piggott School District was the right thing to do.
Teachers who take part in the training will be taught hand to hand combat.
Courses will also include lessons on how to detain a dangerous person.
Holland says some teachers have already expressed interest in pursuing the free training.
