Law Enforcement Active Shooter Emergency Response Train-the-Trainer

32 Contact Hours


This course offering is instructed by Louisiana State University's National Center for Biomedical Research and Training/Academy of Counter-Terrorist Education and hosted on the Center for Domestic Preparedness's campus. 

Terrorism involving active shooter attacks on population centers has become part of law enforcement officers’ awareness; however, increased awareness of a problem does not ensure preparedness or appropriate response tactics. This course addresses technical aspects of planning and implementing a rapid law enforcement deployment to an active shooter incident through classroom presentations, hands-on performance-based field training, and scenario based practical exercises.

This training iteration will be hosted by the Center for Domestic Preparedness and facilitated by Louisiana State University National Center for Biomedical Research and Training / Academy of Counter-Terrorist Education.
