Lawrenceville police can provide response to active shooter course

The Lawrenceville Police Department is available to local organizations interested in having an officer speak about how to respond to an active shooter event. Based on the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, Lawrenceville police have certified instructors willing to come educate and answer any questions.

The CRASE course is designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, and provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and how to conduct drills.
