Continuing Education LET222 Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events Instructor
Available Online – Free! In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these events is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities’ public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats. Research has shown, however, that many of the mass attacks, or active attack events, are over before law enforcement responders arrive on the scene.Civilians who find themselves embroiled in such an event must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. The average response time for police response to an active attack event is three minutes. Without effective, pre-planned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes. This course was designed in conjunction with Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) to provide first responders and other professionals with a model response program they can deliver to civilians within their communities. May also be referred to as Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events Train-the-Trainer (CRASE).This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for #3312. Show less

Continuing Education SAP302 Crime Prevention through Environmental Design
TEEX is now offering a 40-hour Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) practitioners’ course, that is accredited by the International CPTED Association (ICA). CPTED is a multi-disciplinary approach of crime prevention that utilizes urban planning, and architectural design in conjunction with the management of man-made and natural environments, that supports better use of the built environment, community engagement, and improve the quality of life in your community. CPTED strategies aim to deter opportunistic criminal activity, reduce victimization, and build a sense of community so that individuals can maintain control over, and promote legitimate use of spaces, reduce crime, and minimize the fear of crime. This course will enable participants to apply these strategies and principles to creating safer and sustainable communities. The goal of this comprehensive training is to give the attendees the skills to review plans and drawings, analyze the threats and problems, get collaborative input by key resource persons, and develop strategies that create safer environments, and improve the quality of life.
CPTED is used to alter and expand the participant’s perception of the immediate physical and social environment. By altering the perception of the physical environment, the participant will be more capable of understanding the direct relationship of the environment to human behavior, and to crime. An understanding of the design, management, and effective use of the built environment is the first step to increasing the probability of success of the community’s efforts in reducing crime and incivilities.
