In the US, not only are school police training to do battle, they're equipping themselves for it too. State records show 10 different school district police departments in Texas received military surplus equipment, including trucks, guns, and armor, through a Department of Defense program. In all, the departments received 64 M16 rifles, 18 M14 rifles, 25 automatic pistols, and magazines capable of holding 4,500 rounds of ammunition as well armored plating, tactical vests, and 15 surplus military vehicles. Under the program, school police departments received the equipment at little-to-no cost. If a school shooting incident occurs, it should only take 45 minutes or so to get kitted up. The median school shooting spree lasts 12 minutes.
