The Texas Department of Criminal Justice Office of Inspector General along with the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, Huntsville Police Department, and Sam Houston State University Police Department will be participating in the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training, or ALERRT, on May 21st at 1:00 pm in Huntsville on the SHSU campus.
The media has been invited to get a closer look as area law enforcement train on how to respond to various active shooter situations. This vital training is delivered by veteran law enforcement SWAT specialists with proven experience in active shooter response and police training.
The ALERRT curriculum, developed after the tragedy at Columbine High School, has become the national standard in active shooter response training. The first responders to the Fort Hood shootings on November 5, 2009 had been trained by ALERRT and credited their swift and effective response on that day to the ALERRT training they had received.
