PHOENIX, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Star Steven Seagal, 60, led members of an Arizona sheriff's volunteer group through a simulated school shooting, officials said.
The volunteer posse has been used to patrol shopping malls during the holidays and find undocumented immigrants, and now, they are set to patrol areas surrounding schools in the county of Maricopa, ABC News reported.
The volunteers Saturday learned how to handle one, two and three shooter scenarios as well as hand to hand combat and room entry tactics, the county sheriff's office said in a release.
Two dozen high school students volunteered to take part in the simulation and SWAT members posed as the shooters, ABC News said.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been sending volunteer members to patrol schools since the shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Arpaio told ABC News that volunteers will receive 100 hours of training and some will be armed with weapons.
Seagal, the star of "Above the Law" and "Under Siege" occasionally worked as a deputy for the Jefferson Parish sheriff in Louisiana, ABC News said.
