Larry Bates during an active ..., 25 Feb 2014 [cached]
Larry Bates during an active shooter training class held Saturday at the church.
Larry Bates of the Monterey Police Department couldn't have imagined that he'd be conducting a class to prepare a church for the worst scenario imaginable.
"This all came about because of the church shooting where the man had gone in and shot his (sister-in-law) and then killed himself," said Bates, referring to the Double Springs Community Church shooting that happened just prior to worship time on Sunday morning, Feb. 2, in Putnam County.
"Once that hit the media, it kind of shook up some churches up here. Some of them got in contact with me after finding out I was an active shooter instructor and asked if I would come to their church and talk to their congregation - just go over how they could protect themselves if something like this were to happen up here."
Bates said around 15 to 20 church members took part in the training, which included a walk-through of the building along with some do's and don't's on how to take cover.
"We showed them how to barricade themselves in a room to keep a shooter from coming in and where to go in the room if the shooter does get in - stuff like that," Bates said.
"What we wanted to do was just educate them and give them a short history on some active shooter situations of the past," Bates said. "It doesn't just pertain to schools - it also pertains to workplaces, churches... It's happened before, and it'll happen again. But hopefully not here."
Bates, who was certified as an active shooter training instructor in 2013, defined an active shooter as "an individual that enters a location with the intent to shoot one or more persons in an attempt to cause death or serious bodily harm."
It's a situation that's led to highly publicized national tragedies in recent years in such places as schools, movie theaters and political engagements.
Last March, Bates and Phillips even conducted an active shooter training class for area law enforcement officials on the grounds of Monterey High School in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Newtown, Conn., where 20 first-graders and six adults were killed.
"I've done other classes," Bates said.
"It's sad that this is what society has come down to," Bates said.

MONTEREY -- The state will conduct ..., 30 Nov 2009 [cached]
MONTEREY -- The state will conduct an audit of the Monterey Police Department, and that's at the request of the new interim police chief, Larry Bates. Chief Bates confirmed for the Herald-Citizen that he has contacted District Attorney Randy York to ask that an audit be conducted as Bates takes over following the recent abrupt resignation of Chief Tim Murphy. Bates declined to offer further details of what is reportedly a broad investigation to be conducted concerning the Monterey Police Dept.
"I'm responsible for everything (in the department) from this point on, and I wanted to start with an audit," Bates said. "That's all I can say. He also confirmed that he is among those applying for the chief's job. The deadline for submitting applications is Nov. 30. Bates was tapped to fill in as chief last week by the town's Civil Service board right after Monterey Mayor Richard Godsey informed the board that Tim Murphy had resigned.
Larry Bates, 41, has been in law enforcement for 10 years, having worked as a corrections officer in Overton County, as an officer for the Algood Police Dept., and for the Smithville Police. He was hired on the Monterey force in 2006 just before then-Chief Bruce Breedlove left on a vacation trip.
Now, counting interim Chief Bates, the Monterey force has six officers. Bates said he has many goals for the Monterey Police Dept., including a general upgrade, an improved image, and more community-oriented programs, such as Neighborhood Watch. He grew up in a small town near Athens, Georgia, and came here after meeting and marrying his wife, Kimberly Farley Bates. She runs a daycare in Monterey, and they have two children, a son who works in corrections at the White County Sheriff's Dept. and a 13-year-old daughter who attends Burks Middle School.
