Active Shooter / Attacker Training

The Irving Police Department strives to provide the most current and up-to-date information in the area of active and evolving incidents that may occur in the community. The general public frequently requests directions and presentations on what to do if confronted with an active shooter/attacker event or other stressful events.

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter / Attacker Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny and Defend strategy developed by Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter/attacker or other serious events.

Training information includes, but is not limited to, an informal site-specific survey, building security, civilian response options, medical issues, police response protocols and a review of the “Open Carry” law. Participants in this class will receive handouts and suggestions to “harden” their site facility or residence.
