Idaho police chiefs gather for annual conference; pre-set agenda already included how to deal with a mass shooting…

How to deal with a mass shooting was an agenda topic that was set months ago for the fall conference of the Idaho Chiefs of Police Association, which kicked off today in Twin Falls, KBOI2 News reports; the Idaho chiefs were saddened to start off their conference with the news of the Las Vegas shooting.  “I think our collective reaction is one of sadness and sorrow,” Twin Falls Police Chief Craig Kingsbury told KBOI2’s Scott Logan. “As police chiefs, we need to make sure our agencies are as prepared as possible to react and to respond to such an incident.” Logan’s full report is online here.

The police chiefs’ conference agenda also includes sessions on victims’ rights, pre-trial release, body cameras and more.
