Criminology Professors Bring A.L.i.C.E Training Program to the Mount


In conjunction with the MSJ Chief of Campus Police, Tim Carney, Criminology professors Dr. Brooke Gialopsos and Dr. J.W. Carter II have trained nearly 700 MSJ students, staff, and faculty on how to increase their survivability in the event of an active shooter on campus. The A.L.i.C.E. program, created by Response Options, focuses on taking action in the face of immediate danger. They teach simple skills and tools that are common sense, but are not necessarily common knowledge. On May 13th and 14th, the Mount will be hosting a training certification program for law enforcement and school administrators. Conducted by the Response Options group, this training will certify attendants in the program and allow them to teach their employees the tools of A.L.i.C.E.
