Season 1 | Episode 6: What's New In Blue: Coordinated Responses to Mass Casualty Events feat. Dr. Pete Blair

EP 6
In this episode of What’s New in Blue, Dr. Blair speaks about the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center and the importance of coordinating responses among law enforcement, fire services and medical community to respond to active shooter/critical incidents.
Dr. J. Pete Blair is a Professor of Criminal Justice and the Executive Director of the ALERRT Center at Texas State University. In FY 2017, the COPS Office made an award to the ALERRT Center at Texas State University to increase law enforcement and public safety through scenario-based training that prepares officers and other first responders to handle active-shooter and other violent threats safely and effectively.
