UAB Police offer free violence response training
The UAB Police Department provides training for both students and employees as a proactive approach. The training method is known as "ALICE," which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Information, Counter, Evacuate -- a list of options that can be used in any order to fit the circumstance.
Aside from these steps, the training also highlights what sort of areas provide a high or low level of protection, what to do with a weapon if it is dropped or left behind, and what sort of precautions to take in high risk areas.
Student groups who wish to schedule a training session (which can be customized for the group) can contact UAB Police Sgt. Amy Schreiner at 996-2035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
