UTPD Announces Educational Resources for Violent Intruder Encounters
By UTPD Staff 

In light of recent violent intruder events around the country, the UTPD has received inquiries from the campus community on educational resources available for personal preparedness. For the past several years now the UTPD has offered hands-on training in this area for community members with a program called "ALiCE." ALiCE, an acronym which stands for - ALERT LOCKDOWN INFORM COUNTER EVACUATE - is designed to teach the student how to be a participant in his/her survival in a violent intruder encounter. Similarly, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) also offers online training and resources in active shooter preparedness. The training entitled "Active Shooter Preparedness: Run.Hide.Fight" teaches the student how to respond when an active shooter (or violent intruder) is in his/her personal vicinity.

"In the event of an actual violent intruder encounter, UTPD will communicate the words 'Run, Hide, Fight' in the UT Alert message" said Deputy Chief Rodney Theis. "When you see that verbiage it will remind the student to revert back to their training in either ALiCE and/or DHS training on how best to respond" he added. DHS training and other resources are available at the below listed links.
