Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events course was developed as part of the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training for law enforcement officers to take into their communities. Its primary goal is to provide guidance and strategies for surviving a mass shooting attack. Supporting content includes a general profile of attackers, case studies of actual events, including shootings at houses of worship, and the importance of creating a culture of safety where everyone plays a part in keeping our communities safe.
