The purpose of this training is to provide a public service to all citizens’ with lifesaving information to respond to an active shooter event.  The training will feature up to date information and techniques in the Avoid, Deny, and Defend strategies developed by the ALERRT Center at Texas State University.

Violent tragedies in our nation’s schools and institutions of higher learning, such as the 1999 attack at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, changed the response and training protocols for first responding police officers to active shooter events. The changes in response and training protocols is ever changing and adapting; in order to better protect the community and save lives.  Sadly, recent events in Nevada, Texas, and California have demonstrated the need of training and preparation for an active shooter incident.  The CRASE training is not just for educational institutions, but for commerce locations, houses of worship, and many other settings.

The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center continues to modify and improve the training for citizens, in response to active shooter and assailant events. Please join us at the Cole Community Center for this excellent training and presentation.
