STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Tarleton State University Police Department will host a Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training course on Tuesday, Dec. 19, on the Stephenville campus. The training is free and open to the public.

Led by Tarleton’s Sgt. Clell Murray, the two-hour CRASE training workshop takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 178 of the university’s Business Building.

“This course is ideal for any business owner or employee who would like training on how to deal with an active shooter situation,” Murray said. “The course includes actual video footage and re-enactments of mass shootings. Participants learn how to pre-plan and react to increase chances for survival.
