Active shooter course preparing local agencies for emergency situations

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on today.

The Sandy Hook Elementary shootings have prompted law enforcement agencies across the nation to better prepare. Today, local agencies took part in an active shooter training course at Oberlin High School. KPLC's Olivia Vidal has this story.

The Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office reports a Jennings Woman faces charges of obstruction of justice and improper supervision of a minor after an unregistered sex offender was found living in her home.

We'll also show you an organization in Westlake that hopes to educate young people, especially young girls, on the importance of staying abstinent.

The Lake Area has a celebrity pooch among us. Jeanie the three-legged dog is Petco's national spokespet for the "Spring a Pet" Fundraiser.

Rounding out today's coverage are stops at the Black Heritage Festival and Sulphur Mines Festival. We also have coverage from the home of the Po'Boy. But not just any Po'Boy – a 340 foot colossal sandwich that is sure to make your mouth water.

The clouds returned today. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes tells us about our rain chances. Plus, he'll also remind us to set our clocks forward as we enter "Daylight Savings Time."

We'll see you tonight at six for these stories and much more. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
