School Safety Training
In partnership with Indiana educators and local law enforcement, ISP conducts various training sessions throughout Indiana. Training sessions help schools and law enforcement agencies establish partnerships necessary for coordinating a unified and effective response to various incidents.
Joint Training Sessions
Joint Training Sessions are held in each of the Indiana State Police Districts. Each session features the "unarmed response" to an active shooter concept from an informational and a practical drill perspective. Sessions are scheduled by ISP District Public Information Officers in cooperation with local school and law enforcement personnel.
ISP teaches Indiana educators how to conduct threat assessment audits. As set out in the 2013 Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) #1, conducting threat assessments in Indiana schools is a priority. The Indiana State Police will conduct training sessions on performing an appropriate threat assessment in a school setting.
Sessions will be scheduled and conducted in cooperation with the County Commissions referred to in 2013 SEA #1. An audit tool will be presented and training will be provided on its use.
