CBS’s S.W.A.T. show takes on school shootings with help of retired SDPD officer

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - School shootings have become almost an epidemic in the United States as of late. This incredibly difficult topic was tackled on an episode of S.W.A.T. that airs on CBS with the help of a retired San Diego Police officer. 

Retired Officer Otis “Odie” Gallop was on the force for 28 years and spent time on the SWAT Team, Narcotics, Mayoral Protection Detail for Mayor Murphy, Sanders and Faulconer.  Gallop started on the show, S.W.A.T. as a technical advisor in 2017 and has appeared on the show as a recurring character a few times. 

In Thursday night’s episode the SWAT team faces difficult reminders of a past school shooting when they receive a warning that a copycat is planning to re-enact the crime. As the team races to stop the new threat, they flashback to the day of the tense first mission.

Retired Officer Gallup stopped by the Morning Extra studio to talk about what it is like being an advisor on a show like S.W.A.T and he gives tips for students and parents on what to do to prevent school shootings and what you should do if you are caught in one.
