In keeping with our commitment to proactive and transparent community policing, the Department of Public Safety will offer an active shooter and active threats training session on Tuesday, February 15 in the College Hall South Auditorium from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Although active shooter incidents are relatively rare, the sad reality is that these types of emergency events are unpredictable in nature and can evolve rapidly. Active shooter incidents can happen anywhere, at any time, and at any place. The concepts and techniques taught in our Active Shooter Awareness and Preparedness initiative will better prepare you for survival in the event of an active shooter situation on our campus.
Additionally, this training complements our active shooter awareness video that takes viewers inside an active shooter scenario. The video also instructs viewers on the three keys to survival in an active shooter situation—AVOID, BARRICADE, CONFRONT (ABC).
DPS awareness and preparedness programs reinforce the stability and safety of our campus environment and help to alleviate vulnerability and uncertainty among campus stakeholders. For more information about the active shooter safety campaign or another campus safety initiative, please contact Joyce Brooks, Crime Prevention Specialist, at 202-806-1194 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
