Shooter Awareness

Amarillo law enforcement wants the public to be aware of three principles to stay away from a shooter incident.

They’re teaching Avoid, Denty, and Defend, Avoid means, run away, get out of that target zone , the other is get behind a locked door and then find another way out, if possible, and secure yourself. The last thing is to defend yourself by any means available, if necessary.”

Over the past several years, police across our area has been offering what’s called, Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events or CRASE training to businesses, churches and individuals with the goal to empower the community.

Amarillo law enforcement believes its just as important as other disaster training.

The training its free of charge and Amarillo law enforcement can also perform security checks if needed.
