Statistics

The Training:
Since 2002, we have trained more than 60,000 law enforcement officers in 48 states (and the Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia) in the ALERRT standard for active shooter response through federal and state funding.

In the states we have trained, the demand for ALERRT classes is much higher than the funding allows each year.
The ALERRT Train-the-Trainer program has proven to be a successful way to deliver this vital program to first responders and allow agencies to continue with the training beyond the realm of our funding each year.  


The Funding:

As the program has grown, the demand for this training continues to outweigh the supply, but we are constantly seeking avenues for funding and resources to help bring this vital program to communities across the nation.

The actual impact of our program is difficult to measure. This course is designed for response to extremely violent situations. Feedback obtained from course evaluations overwhelmingly indicates that officers feel safer, better trained to handle violent crimes and are making their communities safer through improved response to violent crimes in progress, as well as improved tactical team movements, rescue team tactics, and building search methods.
