|Collin College Police Department||
Emergency deployment protocols were developed across the country and agencies recognized the need to empower the first responders to make immediate, tactical decisions to stop the ongoing violence and save lives. However, this new mandate must also be addressed in training, It is neither appropriate nor advisable to simply TELL our first responders how to respond without first training them HOW TO respond. The ultimate mission of the ALERRT Active Shooter course is to train first responders in basic tactical skills to safely and effectively respond to - address - and stop an active shooter.
Violent attacks in schools, businesses and public places continue to rise, and national terrorism alerts remain in the headlines. The responsibility for quality comprehensive tactical training falls on the shoulders of the men and women who are the front line responders to such critical incidents. Law enforcement agencies across the country are seeking to develop new tactics, policies and awareness programs to deal with active shooter situations.
The Collin College District Police Department takes a proactive role in training for the possibility of an active shooter on campus. With the support of the Presidents Office and Board of Trustees, equipment such as simmuntion training firearms, helmets and shields were purchased to aid in the training. Several Officers attended the week long ALERRT training course and the Department currently has three Officers that attended the ALERRT Instructors course in San Marcus , Tx.
All Collin Officers receive active shooter training on a continuous basis. We typically train during times the campuses are closed and conduct our training in the environment we work in, such as classrooms, hallways, common areas and parking lots.
Pictures and Videos of Training Coming Soon!
