Noble Public Schools – Noble, OK

Cleveland County Sheriff’s deputies have introduced a program to area school districts to give teachers the necessary training and tools to protect students while on campus. The training starts with the A.L.I.C.E. presentation. The acronym stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. Capt. Chris Tipton, SRT commander and patrol supervisor, said, “This is a course designed to inform teachers and faculty proper techniques to defend against an active shooter, more so than simply just locking down,” Tipton said. “The last two hours is a series of realistic scenarios that involve simulated suspects and also actual police officers. During the scenarios the suspects and officers are armed with Simunition weapons to provide the most realistic training possible. Also during the scenarios the teachers will fully participate by not only playing their part as teachers but role playing students as well. These scenarios accurately show the teachers and faculty members involved how deadly an active shooters situation can be.” Read more
