The fall conference of the Idaho Chiefs of Police Association is underway in Twin Falls, and already planned on the agenda:  How to deal with mass shootings.

The agenda was determined months ago, but eerily was part of the gathering that started on the same day as the horrible attack in Las Vegas was being fully understood.

According to coverage from the Spokesman-Review, the Idaho Chiefs felt the weight and sadness of the events in Las Vegas and their focus on similar events.  At the same time, the purpose of the organization and the gathering is to ensure their communities and departments are prepared as possible.

Law enforcement officials agree that what happened in Las Vegas can happen anywhere, so preparedness and better understand of what happened, how to best respond, and look for any warning signs possible is the priority.
