OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Oregon police are partnering with Owens Community College to better prepare officers for handling emergency situations.

City council members met Monday and voted to allow the Oregon Police Department to take part in a training consortium.

"Training is what is going to keep officers from getting hurt or getting killed," said Oregon Police Chief Mike Navarre. "Sometimes we have to send them to other states, and other cities in Ohio, where it's necessary to pay for travel expense, hotel expense. That's something that won't happen by taking advantage of this consortium."

The program will provide additional training for Oregon officers, such as how to handle an active shooter, field officer training, as well as social media guidelines.

"We get a high level of training for our officers, and they're right in our region," said Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian. "It's an easy transport for the officers to get there and the cost is very affordable to the city – so it's a great deal for us, and a great deal for the officers. So everybody in the region benefits."
