Sheriff’s Department Offers Active Shooter Training

The Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department is now offering Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (C.R.A.S.E.) training. These training sessions are free of charge and available to anyone in the community.

C.R.A.S.E. training is designed to give the public the best chance of survival should an active shooter event or other critical incidents occur. This course is built around the “Avoid, Deny, Defend” strategy developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) team at Texas State University.

These courses will provide the community with civilian response strategies, guidance and an action plan in the event of an active shooter, medical issues and other emergencies. C.R.A.S.E. courses are taught by certified instructors and geared to churches, businesses and other public organizations.

To schedule a C.R.A.S.E. session or get more information, please call (662) 234-6421.
