Manchester, NJ

Law enforcement professionals from throughout New Jersey visited Manchester last week for an important active school shooter training course that could help to save lives in an emergency situation. ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) training, which focuses on giving students and staff more options than the traditional lockdown — a technique that historically has proven to be ineffective as it creates stationary targets for shooters — was presented during the two-day course held at Manchester Township Police headquarters and Manchester Township High School.
