NISD Police Officers Host ALERRT Training

Nacogdoches ISD police officers joined other area law enforcement agencies while holding an Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) session.

The training took place July 30-31 at Nacogdoches High School. In addition to going over new information and methods in an instructional setting, police and sheriff’s deputies worked through active shooter scenarios inside the 9th-grade building at NHS.

“I believe in the idiom that you practice like you play,” said Nacogdoches ISD Police Chief Sandra Murray. “Exposing our police officers to scenario-based training such as ALERRT is the foundation of a well-trained force.”

In addition to NISD police officers, law enforcement personnel from the Nacogdoches Police Department, Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office and Lufkin Police Department were on hand.

ALERRT was created in 2002 at Texas State University to address the need for active shooter response training for first responders. The ALERRT Center at Texas State has trained more than 85,000 police officers from across the nation in dynamic, force-on-force scenario-based situations.
