The Indiana State Police, in conjunction with the Sheridan Police Department, will host a public forum on the topic of active shooter situations. This forum will include presentation of the Indiana State Police’s nationally recognized program, Unarmed Response to Active Shooter Events.
The goal of the program is to provide prevention strategies and response options to increase the opportunity to survive an active shooter event. The options presented may enhance safety and security while awaiting response by law enforcement. This presentation expands the prevailing paradigm of simply “run, hide, fight” in the event of a violent encounter. This forum will provide an opportunity to speak with law enforcement about your concerns within your community, and help you prepare yourself for the unthinkable.
This program has been presented to dozens of school systems around the state, including Sheridan Community Schools. The video scenario in the presentation was filmed at Sheridan High School earlier this year. This will be the first community forum presented by the Indiana State Police of its kind. Further information about this program can be located at www.in.gov/isp.
SPECIAL NOTE: The Sheridan Community Center has a capacity of 200 people, there is no charge to attend this forum and seating will be on a first come first serve basis.
