Pima JTED Law Enforcement Students Our Newest Sheepdogs!
Since 2013, there have been over 300 school shootings in America – an average of nearly one a week. On Saturday, April 14th, 30 Pima JTED Law Enforcement students received the knowledge, skills and abilities to better survive an active shooter event. Conducted by Integrated Community Solutions to Active Violence Events (ICSAVE), ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) and Bleeding Control are a set of proactive, options-based strategies, that increase school employees’ and students’ chances of survival and bridge the gap between the time a violent event begins and law enforcement arrives. Participants learned and experienced the decisive advantages of proactive vs. passive response strategies via numerous live scenario drills and Bleeding Control interventions and are now empowered to help save lives!
