Texas Could Get Millions for Active Shooter Training

April 17, 2014  | 

A law enforcement training center based at Texas State University in San Marcos may receive millions of federal dollars to support programs that train officers how to handle situations like the recent Fort Hood shooting, reports the Texas Tribune.

U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday cited the recent tragedy at Fort Hood as he asked Congress to authorize a combined $15 million for "active shooter response training" and other officer safety initiatives.

Texas State University's Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center is the national leader for active shooter training programs funded by the Department of Justice. It has trained more than 50,000 officers nationwide in the past decade, using more than $30 million in state and federal grant money, according to the center.

"The additional funds would allow us to reach more people," said Pete Blair, director of research at ALERRT. "Obviously, we'd like to roll out the training to every officer we can reach – the more funding, the more officers we can reach."
