MSU to provide statewide active shooter training with $50K grant

Posted online

Missouri State University announced it would provide active shooter training statewide through a recently awarded $50,000 grant.

MSU will facilitate the training with funding from the Missouri Department of Public Safety, which awarded the grant through the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, according to a news release.

“As we’ve seen across the nation, active shooters pose a threat to communities large and small,” Department of Public Safety Director Sandy Karsten said in the release. “This free training through MSU will make available to law enforcement across our state dynamic active shooter response training that is recognized as the national standard.”

The training curriculum is being provided through the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training at Texas State University.

Law enforcement agencies that want to host the training can contact MSU for details, according to the release.

The MSU Public Safety Training Center, led by Cody Brewington, will be in charge of the training.
