Active shooter training to be held at LCCC

Laramie County Community College will hold an active shooter training from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 13 in the Union Pacific Centennial room in the Center for Conferences and Institutes.

 

The FBI’s Active Shooter Detection and Prevention Training is designed for Wyoming educators, school resource officers and administrators. During the training, attendees will receive instruction on active shooter threat assessment and management. They will also receive training on how to identify people with intent to commit violence, what the risk factors and warning signs are, and how to reduce the risk of target violence.

 

“My department is going to learn a lot from it and we are going to try to do enhanced training,” said James Crosby, the campus safety director.

 

Crosby said that a good thing anyone on campus can do to help contribute to prevent violence is to report a concern or any signs of intent of violence through Care Team at http://www.lccc.wy.edu/services/careteam/referrals.aspx.
