Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE)

Law enforcement officers and agencies are frequently requested by schools, businesses, and community members for direction and presentations on what they should do if confronted with an active shooter event. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and considerations for conducting drills.

Several officers within the Department are certified trainers in this course.  If you are interested in hosting a training course for your business or church please contact the Department during normal business hours (8:00 am – 4:30 pm) to schedule.

The Department will announce CRASE training courses that will be held at their office throughout the year.  Attendees are required to register in advance to attend.
