SWAT training on the Ohio River
TAYLORSPORT, Ky. (WKRC) -- There's a heavy police presence along the Ohio River Wednesday, but there's no need for alarm.
Officers from a number of northern Kentucky agencies are participating in a swat training exercise near Taylorsport.
They will train all day on how to board barges and other boats. Drills like these are about more than just how to treat an emergency. It's also typically about psychology, timing, and tactics like who gets off the boat first.
McGinnis provided a barge and a tugboat. This is the first of three training sessions of this type this month.
