Seagal to lead school shooting response exercise

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s team will participate in a simulated school shooting as a training exercise, with help from a special celebrity guest, according to a statement.

Along with instructors, actor Steven Seagal will lead the simulation, to take place in the Arizona county on Saturday, February 9.

Seagal, who has made a name for himself headlining action movies such as “Above the Law” and Under Seige,” will help educate 40 armed volunteers on room-entry tactics and hand-to-hand tactics, the statement says.

Since January, Arpaio, known for his tough stance on undocumented immigrants, has worked to put together what the statement refers to as a posse program to patrol the areas surrounding schools.

Seagal was featured in "Steven Seagal: Lawman" which according to IMDB followed his "adventures as a fully-commissioned deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana."
