Walters State Community College’s Regional Law Enforcement Academy in Greeneville will host active-shooter response training Feb. 21-22.
The two-day ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) training teaches proactive survival strategies for violent intruder or active shooter incidents. The goal of the ALICE program is to provide individuals with survival-enhancing options for those critical moments in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives on the scene.
The registration fee for this training is $595 per person and can be completed online at alicetraining.com.
In addition to law enforcement, ALICE training is a useful strategy for schools, universities, hospitals, businesses and places of worship. Completing the ALICE instructor training course provides individuals with certification in ALICE training and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back to their places of work.
ALICE training is in line with recommendations from the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
