ULLIN, IL (KFVS) - Employees at Shawnee Community College had the opportunity to attend campus safety training on Wednesday, June 20 that provided employees with a plan how to more proactively handle the threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter event.
The training provided is based upon option based tactics which have become the accepted response for organizations that wish to provide additional layers of protection against potentially life-threatening events on college campuses and other public facilities.
The training was conducted by the Illinois State Police Safety Education Officer Trooper Greg Miller and was attended by many employees as well as some members of The Shawnee Community College Board of Trustees.
The seminar was also recorded to offer those who were not able to attend the opportunity to view this training event at a later date
"The protection and safety of our students, faculty and staff must be a priority. This training gives us additional tools that helps us to ensure we are providing the highest level of safety to protect those individuals who travel around the campus daily. We are thankful to the Illinois State Police for partnering with us to provide this informative training seminar," said President Peggy Bradford.
