To prepare kids in Acapulco’s elementary schools for unexpected violence, police officials have initiated a program to teach schoolchildren how to protect themselves in the event of a shooting.

In Acapulco, some 500 people have been killed in 2010 due to clashes between the Southern Pacific Cartel and the Independent Acapulco Cartel, who are warring over control of the drug trade in the port city.
