The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University studies multiple facets of active shooter response and law enforcement best practices. Staff members determine the best safety practices for officers in high stress situations. This data can be utilized to help law enforcement administrators make policy decisions regarding their department’s active shooter response protocols.
