The background

The ALERRT course is intended to train first responders on how to "isolate, distract and neutralize an active shooter,” according to district information.

The training is required for police officers every two years to retain their license with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement, LHISD Director of Communications Rachel Acosta said. Participants at the LHISD training may include police officers with the district and city of Liberty Hill, plus first responders from other agencies, she said.

The training has been delivered to more than 303,928 first responders across the state since 2002, according to the ALERRT Center’s website. ALERRT was declared the national standard for active shooter response training by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2013 and has been adopted in numerous states.
