The Lake in the Hills Police Department is offering free active shooter training this fall to teach individuals how to prepare, prevent and react during an active shooter event or mass attack in a variety of workplace and gathering environments, including religious institutions.

This two-hour training is offered monthly from August through November. We are proud to partner with our community to help our citizens gather the tools to survive when every second counts.

The course provides strategies, guidance and a plan for surviving an active shooter event. The CRASE course was designed to empower civilians and provide them with the tools needed to survive the unthinkable. The course was created by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center (ALERRT) at Texas State University.

CRASE is built on the three principles of avoid, deny, defend. Topics include: history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, considerations for conducting drills, how to control the body’s physiological response to stressful situations and more.
