MCC Police offers quarterly active shooter response training to prepare individuals to handle the threat of an Active Shooter. ALICE teaches individuals to participate in their own survival, while leading others to safety. Though no one can guarantee success in this type of situation, this new set of skills will greatly increase the odds of survival should anyone face this form of disaster. ALICE is broken up into five strategies: Alert; Lockdown; Inform; Counter and Evacuate.
