The campus makes every effort to intervene before a person may turn violent, but we continue to see in our society that prevention is not always possible. UTPD and local law enforcement train regularly for these terrible crimes; but individuals need to know what to do before police arrive.
There is information and training available for the campus community. Visit the Active Shooter page on the safety website and watch the videos. Training and drills are available for student groups and departments. You can request training through UTPD’s Community Relations Unit by filling out this form.
