Free Civilian Attack Response Course Offered

21 Feb , 2020  

Since 2002, the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT)™ Program at Texas State University has been used to train law enforcement officers across the nation in how to rapidly respond to dangerous active threat situations. As a result of increased public awareness, many citizens have asked what individuals can do protect themselves and reduce the dangers faced during one of these events.

On March 24, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, the Bellville Police Department will host a civilian response training course. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter/Attack Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on ALERRT’s Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategic program, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event.

The main topics that will be addressed are:

  • Active shooter statistical data and profiles
  • Developing situational awareness
  • Effects of stress on performance and behavior
  • Recent events, determining lessons learned
  • Avoid, Deny, Defend: Strategies to keep you and your loved ones safer during an active threat event
  • Law enforcement role once they arrive and how to respond to law enforcement when they arrive
  • Crisis management skills

The course is free and open to anyone 15 years or older. Those interested in attending can register here.
