A.L.i.C.E. was designed as a tool to educate the working sector on how to survive and counter active killer threats. In today’s day and age active killer situations are on the rise. In the wake of multiple school shootings and other mass killing events the Allen County Sheriff’s Office opted to bring A.L.i.C.E. to Allen County.
A.L.i.C.E. has been implemented in the Marmaton Valley and Iola school districts and is currently being implemented in the Humboldt school district as well. The point of A.L.i.C.E. is to get away from the hide and wait method and teach life saving skills and strategies should its implementation be needed.
A – Alert: becoming aware of a threat
L – Lockdown: if evacuation is not possible, barricading and other counter measures are used
I – Inform: communicate in real-time with 911 dispatchers, co-workers, and other students/staff
C – Counter: creating noise, distance, and distraction by any means necessary
E – Evacuate: evacuation of the building as soon as possible
Under the direction of Sheriff Bryan J. Murphy, the Allen County Sheriff’s Office began offering A.L.i.C.E. training to the general public at the end of 2015. The class is offered at no charge and is designed to be a “hands on” approach to active killer survival methods and procedures.
