Marshall PD to host civilian shooter training event

MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) -

In late June, The Marshall Police Department will host a training class on how to react in an active shooter event.

The event will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 30 at the Marshall Civic Center, 2501 E. End Blvd. 

The public is invited and is free for everyone to attend.

The Marshall Police Department will be holding a Civilian Response to Active Shooter Incidents training class on Saturday, June 30, 2018 in the Civic Center Auditorium. This training will last approximately 3 hours. The class is FREE and open to the public. The purpose of the class is to train the general public how to react to an active shooter situation until police arrive. 

For more than a decade, as active shooter events have been on the rise, the primary focus has been teaching law enforcement how to respond quickly and stop threats. But in the few minutes it takes officers to arrive on scene, there are effective ways for civilians to respond in an active shooter situation. 

For more information, visit the event's Facebook page.
