Active Shooter Preparedness Training

Because of recent tragedies that have occurred at schools and institutions of higher learning throughout the world, Humboldt State University Police Officers have been trained and equipped to provide a combined response to include joint action with local law enforcement partners, as well as firefighters and paramedics, to address such threats here on our campus. In addition, our officers receive training in crisis intervention, as well as de-escalation training, to improve their response to situations involving mentally ill subjects.

In collaboration with the HSU Training Department, UPD Officer Andy Martin will offer training on being prepared for an active shooter scenario on-campus. In light of the recent events, it is an important reminder that we must all be vigilant and prepared to keep our community safe.
