Active Shooter/Threat Awareness
"If you see or hear something, SAY SOMETHING!"
The ALERRT Center at Texas State University has developed the AVOID, DENY, DEFEND protocol to assist individuals in protecting themselves should they be faced with an active shooter or threat event. Bastrop ISD PD believes strongly in this protocol and encourages all of our students, parents, employees, and visitors to the District to take some time and watch the video and visit the ALERRT Center at Texas State University - AVOID, DENY, DEFEND website to gain a better understanding of how to respond to an active shooter or threat event.
We HIGHLY encourage you to seek out a ALERRT Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course in your community. If you can't find a class, the ALERRT and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) have developed a Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course that is available online to anyone who wants to learn more of how to respond as a civilian to an active shooter or threat event.
