Many students, faculty, staff and visitors have asked what to do if they found themselves in an active shooter scenario. As unlikely but frightening as it may be, the Campus Police Department encourages everyone to consider the options that are available to protect oneself.

The Department of Homeland Security, in concert with the Houston Mayor's Office, produced an active shooter training video, entitled "Run, Hide, Fight!" This six-minute video, endorsed by multiple Federal agencies, dramatizes an active shooter incident in the workplace, exemplifying the unpredictability and quick evolution of active shooter situations. Its purpose is to educate the public by demonstrating response actions during such an incident so that they can prepare for an active shooter situation.

The University of Missouri–St. Louis Police Department is committed to the safety of our community and offers a wide variety of training opportunities free of charge, including Active Shooter Response Training. For more information and to request training please contact Lt. David Woods (314) 516-4189 or woodsc@umsl.edu.
