During an emergency on a school campus ­- violence, terrorism or an emergency event – it is the first actions taken by school administrators and teachers that will minimize any potential loss of life. An effective emergency plan is critical to making sure the administration’s actions are easily and correctly conveyed to emergency personnel to improve response time and to immediately protect students and employees. The two-day Emergency Operations Plan Technical Assistance course outlines the necessary guidelines to prepare across all areas of school safety. A variety of other security courses are available to individuals and other public and private sector organizations through TEEX licensing by the Texas Private Security Bureau. As a Class F, Level III, Training School, security courses provide skills to improve safety, security, and community resilience for both public and school safety certification and private security licensing.

Administration 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 online 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 #3364. Show less

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.
