The LLCC Police Department is offering two Practical Response to Active Shooters training sessions: Fridays, Dec. 5 and 12. Both sessions will run  from 1:30-3 p.m. in room 1104 of Sangamon Hall. Training is open to all LLCC faculty, staff or students; however, pre-registration is required (max of 25 participants per session). Please email heather.voyles@llcc.edu to register.

PRACTICAL RESPONSE TO ACTIVE SHOOTERS
There have been approximately 70 active shooter incidents in the U.S. over the past four years; about a quarter of these occurring in schools. If you ever found yourself in an active shooter event, would you know what to do? As with any emergency situation, prior thought and planning play an immense role in our individual response to these highly stressful incidents.

Presented by members of the Lincoln Land Community College Police Department, this hands-on training will provide you with options on what to do during an active shooter incident, teach you the techniques and then give you an opportunity to actually practice these newly learned skills in a supportive, non-stressful environment.
