Additional CRASE Training
We are pleased to offer another opportunity to attend the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course to the community that we serve.

Shopping malls, concert halls, bike paths, night clubs, places of work and places of worship – innocent people senselessly attacked while going about their daily lives. The world can be a very dangerous place if we are not educated and if we are not prepared. By providing important information and valuable guidance, we hope to equip our citizens with the tools they need to protect themselves and to help them protect their families.

The CRASE course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, the role of professional guardians, civilian response options, medical issues, and drills.

The training will held on Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm in the Community Room of the Middlesex Borough Library, located at 1300 Mountain Avenue, Middlesex, NJ 08846. The training will consist of a PowerPoint presentation followed by a question and answer session.

The training is FREE, seating is limited to the first 40 registrants. Attendees must be 18 years of age or older. Registrants who are not among the first 40 will be invited to attend future presentations. To reserve a seat,  complete the form below and email the online form or print and return the form to Middlesex Police Headquarters no later than June 1, 2018.

Register now and receive this training from Middlesex Police Officers, dedicated to the safety of our citizens and of our community. Become a “hard target”.
