"Zombies" Help Police During Local Training Exercise

Police officers got some help from the undead during a crowd-management training course. Two dozen "zombie" volunteers threw water bottles, blocked doorways and tossed insults at officers as they weaved around cones on bicycles at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. The training was held during the International Police Mountain Bike Association Conference at Ohio Wesleyan University. The zombie-involved exercise was intended to teach officers how to manage crowds at festivals or during civil disorder. Zombie volunteer Courtney Pickett says her favorite part was throwing water bottles, something she wouldn't get to do in the non-zombie world.
