In the aftermath of the massacre in Orlando, many people are turning their attention to the ways law enforcement agencies handle active shooter situations.

Concerns range from when to engage a shooter as well as how much time officers should allow before taking action.

The Canton Police Department is holding its annual active shooter training this week. The courses focus on ways to district, isolate and neutralize an active shooter.

Officer Pacer Cordry told FOX 5 News each situation is different. He added tactics may change depending on the number of shooters, the types of weapons or explosive devices involved and if hostages were taken.

"You never know what to prepare for, so you can only prepare for the worst," Cordry said.

The training will continue through Friday.
