Officers were training for three different scenarios: riot control or mobile response, building searches and active shooter scenarios.
“The threats always out there,” MPD Detective Kirk Cromwell says, “we don’t get to choose where it’s gonna show up or when it’s gonna show up, but we have to be prepared for it.”
This is one of a dozen trainings officers take part in each year. At least one topic is covered every month.
Executive Producer Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5 and 6. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.
She came to KOBI-TV/NBC5 from Bangor, Maine where she was the evening news anchor. Kristin has won multiple journalism awards including Best Feature Reporting in the State of Maine. In 2017, her investigation on lead pipes in Medford’s water system was named Best News Series by the Oregon Association of Broadcasters.
When Kristin is not sharing the news, she’s traveling, hunting down the best burrito, or buried in a Jodi Picoult novel. She’s also a Green Bay Packers shareholder; if you see her out and about she’d be happy to tell you the story of how a California girl became a cheesehead.
