BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — A retired Aurora Police Command Officer knows what it’s like to respond to an active shooter incident. Michael Dailey was a lieutenant with APD, and co-incident commander during the Aurora theater shooting in 2012. He now travels the country, teaching other law enforcement agencies and first responders lessons learned.
“I can tell you from personal experience when responding to something like that, first off, when the call comes out, it seems almost surreal. You’ve trained for it, you think you’re ready for it. But when it comes out, it’s surreal,” Dailey said.
