NFA Campus Holds Lockdown Drill Training

Local law enforcement agencies use K-9 detector dogs at Newburgh Free Academy Main and North Campuses during a recent training exercise.

NEWBURGH - On Tuesday, April 22, a lock-down drill using 12 detector dogs from local police agencies was conducted at both Newburgh Free Academy (NFA) Main and North Campuses.

Participating agencies were the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, City of Newburgh Police Department, City of Middletown Police Department, Town of Warwick Police Department, and the Village of Monroe Police Department.

The drill was a successful training exercise for both the law enforcement agencies and the Newburgh Enlarged City School District.

"I feel that these drills are vital in keeping our schools safe and free of illegal substances, and will schedule additional similar drills in the future in cooperation with local agencies. The ongoing support and collaboration from local agencies is an indispensable part of school safety here in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District," explained District Security Director John Young.
