Last week, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) delivered the Active Shooter Threat Training Program to 19 law enforcement officers in Louisville, Kentucky. Participants consisted of state and local law enforcement officers from the Louisville Metro Police Department, Jefferson County Sherriff’s Office, Bullitt County Sherriff’s Office, University of Louisville Police Department, and Indiana University Police Department. The Louisville Metro Police Department hosted the training.
The dynamic, hands-on training program is designed to equip law enforcement officers and agents with the knowledge and skills required to end an active threat event successfully. The Active Shooter Threat Program prepares students to employ Active Shooter Threat Tactics through dynamic, interactive drills and scenario-based training. Officer Will Keaton of the University of Louisville said, “The training was incredibly valuable, and we will use it to train other University officers in response to an Active Threat. Best active shooter class I have ever taken!”
Participants utilized the University of Louisville football stadium and Louisville Slugger Stadium to practice maneuvers and responses to an active shooter threat during the training. “The tactics we learned will definitely help if there was ever an event at the stadium. This was the best training I’ve had to date,” said Officer Lorissa Karlburg of the University of Louisville Police Department.
FLETC provides career-long training to law enforcement professionals to help them fulfill their responsibilities safely and proficiently. FLETC prepares the federal law enforcement community to safeguard the American people, our homeland, and our values through strategic partnerships.
