CENTRAL POINT, OR--  Central Point police are teaching people how to respond to an active shooter.

The training course is offered several times throughout the year or upon request. The goal is to teach skills and strategies that will bridge the gap between the time an emergency begins and law enforcement's arrival.

During training, they taught people a strategy known as ALICE. Which is short for alert, lock-down, inform, counter and evacuate. Officers say learning strategies like "alice" can save lives.

Robert Mannenbach a SRO for the Central Point Police Department taught the class on Saturday. He says, "it was just a reminder that it can happen anywhere. It can happen right next door. It doesn't have to be a huge college, it doesn't have to be a huge school. It could be a community college, it could be an elementary school out in the middle of the country. It could be anywhere. That's why it's so important to get this message out, to preserve life in these types of situations."

If you are interested in hosting an ALICE training for your school, church or workplace, contact the department at:
