Video - Preparing for an Active Shooter

Dear Campus Community,

With the recent active shooter events that have taken place across our nation, as well as the ongoing dialogue regarding such events in the public square, I would like to take this opportunity to share with every member of our campus community an informative and instructive video that may help each and every one of you to prepare for such an event should it take place on our campus.

While the University Police department has taken every measure to ensure that we are prepared to respond in the event of an active shooter, your awareness of what measures to take in such an event may be instrumental in not only your survival but the survival of those around you. Please be aware that due to the nature and content of this video, there are simulated acts of violence which may be disturbing and not suitable for all viewers. However I believe that the instructional nature of this video is important enough to encourage everyone to take the time to view this video in the hope that it will help you prepare should an incident like this take place.
