In the event that an active shooter was to enter your place of work, school, shopping or areas of recreation, would you be prepared?

The Jasper County Public Library has partnered with Troopers Jacob Raupp and Ryan Hovarter of the Indiana State Police to offer two opportunities for you to attend ISP’s Unarmed Response to the Active Shooter training.

This training is designed to create awareness and to provide alternatives for surviving an active shooter event.

Exercising the options presented in this training may increase your chance of survival while awaiting the arrival of law enforcement.

This program will Define the Active Shooter, Examine Current Trends, Data, and Early Warning Indicators; Recognize the Phases of the Active Shooter, Discuss Responsibilities of Management and of the Individual, Discuss Response Options and Strategies, and Provide General Information and Suggestions on Active Shooter Events.

This program is free and open to all ages. Choose from two sessions: Monday, May 2 @ 2 pm at the Rensselaer Library and Monday, May 16 @ 6 pm at the DeMotte Library.
