Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE)

The Rhome Police Department provides training for the City of Rhome’s schools, businesses, and faith-based organizations on what they should do if confronted with an active shooter event. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) was developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University in 2004, and was designed to provide strategies, guidance, and a proven plan to survive active shooter events. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, an understanding of the human body’s mental and physical responses to high stress incidents, and civilian response strategies and tactics. The training is presented by a team of highly trained Rhome Police Officers that have been certified through ALERRT.

The CRASE course is approximately 2 hours in length and a minimum of 25 participants is preferred to schedule the training.  We are able and willing to present at your location, provided there is available space and basic audio/video capabilities.  As an additional service, we can be scheduled to conduct site visits of your facility and provide insight into your current security practices and emergency plans.
