Chadron P.D. participates in active shooter training

Posted: Updated:
On June 19 and 20, 2014, the Chadron Police Department and the Dawes County Sheriff’s Office participated in Active Shooter training at the Chadron High School. 

This two day course allowed local law enforcement to partner with the Chadron Public Schools and train for situations involving active shooters.  The training included 4 hours of classroom work with 12 hours of hands on situational scenarios.  The course also included staff members of the school district, as they were involved in the training as actors and got to participate and view how law enforcement will respond to situations involving active shooters. 

The training course is called Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training, (ALERRT), and  was funded and coordinated by Western Nebraska Community College.

The instructors for the training course came from the Scottsbluff County Sheriff’s Office and the Scottsbluff Police Department.


With the completion of this training on Friday, the Chadron Police Department became the first law enforcement agency in the panhandle of Nebraska to have its entire patrol staff trained in ALERRT.
