Active Shooter Training Grant for First Responders

The U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services has announced an $8.7 million grant for multi-disciplinary, scenario-based active shooting training for first responders. The funding will go to the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University, which has trained approximately 130,000 first responders since its inception in 2002. The 2018 investment for ALERRT will provide in-person training to an estimated 15,000 first responders, in addition to the 9,000 individuals that received the training in 2017.
