The Black River Falls Police Department is getting close to 25 thousand dollars from the city budget for new equipment that the department says will help them be more prepared in case of a mass shooting.

Police chief Dave Frederick says a gear update is long "overdue". The Department already began purchasing some equipment that will help them respond better to emergencies, like an active shooter.
The Chief says after the Newtown massacre and many other mass shootings influenced the decision.
