Making our community safer is a big priority for Amarillo’s College.
They have announced a three-year partnership with ALERRT (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training) which will provide required active shooter training for regional peace officers.
Texas Senate Bill 1852 passed in May, which mandates all peace officers in Texas to receive 16 hours of up-to-date active shooter training every two years.
ALERRT will provide instructors and supplies at no cost, benefitting area officers.
Since 2022, ALERRT trained over 27,000 first responders with a goal to train more through partnerships.
Amarillo College will serve as a regional hub for active shooter training starting in January and the partnership will also benefit Amarillo College Academy recruits
