DPS Armed Intruder Training Workshops Continue


University Police at Southeast Missouri State University is offering free armed intruder training workshops for faculty, staff and students.

Armed intruder training imparts the knowledge necessary to improve the chances of survival in a critical event in workplaces and schools, and empowers individuals with tools to help themselves and others. A well-trained community is better prepared to mitigate and respond in a violent incident.

Training is available through two courses. Level 1 training delivers the program through instructor presentation and group discussion of practical scenarios. The Level 1 course takes approximately one hour and is ideal when time is limited or to obtain a basic understanding of the preparedness method.

Join one of the following workshops:

  • April 26 from 10 a.m.-noon in the University Center Program Lounge
  • May 4 from 10 a.m.-noon in Robert A. Dempster Hall Room 022

Register through Training & Development in Skillsoft:

The two-hour Level 2 session includes the first hour presentation and a second hour of interactive scenarios. Participation in the scenarios is encouraged, but is not required. The Level 2 session requires a minimum of 10 participants. To request a Level 2 session for a group, organization or department, contact University Police at (573) 651-6737.
