One of the key components of the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center at Texas State University is our research. Our robust research division, under the direction of Dr. Hunter Martaindale, studies multiple facets of active shooter response and law enforcement best practices. Our team of doctoral students works year-round on law enforcement training based studies to determine the best safety practices for officers in high stress situations. This data can be utilized to help law enforcement administrators make policy decisions regarding their department's active shooter response protocols.
