UPD to Offer ALICE Instructor Training at WTAMU


CANYON, Texas—The West Texas A&M University Police Department (UPD) and the ALICE Training Institute are teaming up to bring ALICE Instructor Training to West Texas A&M University May 30-31.

The two-day instructor course is designed to teach proactive survival strategies for violent intruder or active shooter incidents. The goal of the ALICE program is to provide individuals with survival-enhancing options for those critical moments in thUPD coine gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives on scene. The registration fee for this training is $595 per person and can be completed online at www.alicetraining.com.

ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate and is a useful strategy for everyone: law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses and places of worship. Completing the ALICE Instructor Training course provides individuals with certification in ALICE Training and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back to their places of work. Those participating also will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources.

ALICE is in line with recommendations from the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
