The Case Western Reserve University Police Department offers an active shooter response program for our university, known as A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate). The program has received national praise and is presented by request to CWRU community members.

CWRU police officers who are certified A.L.I.C.E. instructors present the training program. 

During the training, attendees get an in-depth look into an active-shooter situation while learning tactical advantages during an armed-intruder incident. 

Since CWRU Police began providing this training, more than 7,500 community members have attended, learning easily applied strategies and concepts to take if faced with an armed assailant entering a building or classroom.

Presentations can be tailored to your group’s needs; they typically last about an hour.

To schedule an on-site training presentation for your group, contact training instructor Sgt. Paul Owens at 216.368.6953 or
