Seminole, FL -- Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook. The worst case scenarios school resource officers and law enforcement try to prepare for. And that's exactly what they did in both Pinellas and Sarasota counties this week.

Pinellas law enforcement and various fire rescue agencies took over Osceola Middle School Wednesday, sharpening their shooting skills in a handful of realistic scenarios. 

The officers and deputies used soft soap bullets that explode on impact so they could see where they hit.

In Sarasota Wednesday, police department SWAT team members held their own active shooter training at Temple Beth Shalom School. You can watch a video of their training below.
