News & Events

The Sonora Police Department and the ALICE Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE Instructor Training to Sonora on the 21 & 22 December 2015. This two day instructor course is designed to teach proactive survival strategies for violent intruders or active shooter incidents. The goal of the ALICE program is to provide individuals with survival-enhancing options for those critical moments between the gap when a violent situation beings and law enforcement arrives on scene.

ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. It’s a useful strategy for everyone; law enforcement, schools, colleges, hospitals, businesses, and places of worship. Completing the ALICE Instructor Training course provides individuals with certification in ALICE Training, and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back to their places of work. Additionally, participants will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources.

ALICE is in line with recommendations from the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The ALICE Training Institute is changing how schools, colleges, businesses, and places of worship respond to armed intruders. ALICE, developed after Columbine, teaches strategies to survive a life threatening event. Supported by educators and law enforcement across the country, ALICE is quickly becoming the new standard.
