Doug Rowell, head of Pearl River Community College's campus police force, said the emergency mock incident exercise tested the readiness of the unit to respond to emergencies.It also located weaknesses in the unit's response and judged area law enforcement and emergency agencies' assistance efforts.
The results of the exercise will allow Rowell and the department to re-evaluate their procedures and make necessary changes and improvements.
The exercise began at 9:25 a.m. with activation of the campus Emergency Mass Notification System in response to an active shooter alert in one of the campus dormitories.Shortly after, on another part of the campus, an explosion and white cloud could be seen from a portable classroom.Both scenarios were geared to student and PRCC staff involvement.
As the exercise unfolded Rowell said better communication emerged as one of the primary issues that needed to be addressed, a point raised in subsequent critiques by several observers.
Rowell said he hoped to get the entire department involved in active shooter training.

The purpose of the program was to give students insight into police work and to familiarize cadets with actual police cadet training, said Captain Doug Rowell, JPA director and Poplarville police officer.The cadets, who ranged from 8th through 12th grade, participated in physical training, marching, class assignments, and presentations.
"We want our young people to see law enforcement officers as leaders who create a safe, crime-free environment for the community," said Rowell.
The Academy program was open county-wide this year, Rowell said, with 13 of the cadets from Poplarville and 13 from Picayune, but next year would explore widening participation a little bit.He said the program should be able to handle twice as many cadets because he had such good response on assistance.
"These 26 cadets were challenged and tested both physically and mentally," said Rowell.

Police officer Capt. Doug Rowell also addressed the board in support of Howard's request.Rowell, who skates regularly at skate parks on the coast and Hattiesburg, said he has done quite a bit of research regarding building such a facility in Poplarville.He proposed a two-phase plan to implement a skating park complete with ramps for doing stunts and adding more playground equipment.He also would like to see an additional cycling track to accommodate skates, skateboards, tricycles and bicycles which would be separate from the stunt skating and biking area.
Rowell said he gathered his data from parks and recreation departments in towns in Mississippi and other states to see how they successfully operate such facilities.Rowell said he has already talked to a company which specializes in putting together packages for skate parks and playground equipment.In addition, he said he has talked to local business owners and others in the community who are in favor of improving upon the park and would support such a venture.
