A.L.i.C.E. training: Teaching how to respond when an intruder threatens

A.L.i.C.E. stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. This nationally-renowned training was developed following examination of school shootings, such as the one that occurred April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School in Colorado.

UAPD has adopted the program and has trained more than 26,000 faculty, staff, and students, teaching the proactive measures that people can take when faced with an assailant entering a building or classroom.
