Plan to Attend ALICE Training

ALICE Training

The Windom Police Department will be providing active shooter training (Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate – ALICE) for City employees on September 16th and September 19th from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at City Hall, Council Chamber.  Department heads have been notified of the upcoming training and all employees are encouraged to attend one of the sessions.  This important training will be paid time for those employees attending.

One website dedicated to ALICE training notes the following pertaining to Governmental workspaces:

While it would seem if any employees would be secure from extreme workplace violence, those working in highly-secured government buildings should be that fortunate group. However, the truth is otherwise. Many federal government locations have experienced attacks yielding casualties: the US Capitol, the Manhattan Federal Building, VA Hospitals. Even Military installations have seen events caused by both deranged individuals and those motivated by terrorism that have caused injuries and deaths: Fort Hood, US Army Recruiting Stations, and the US Navy Yard.

State, County, and Local government facilities have also experienced mass shootings: The Connecticut State Lottery, San Bernardino County of Public Health, Kirkwood MO City Council are examples. And like their federal counterparts, the motivation for the shootings of employees at these facilities ranged from disgruntled employees or citizens to terrorism.

Like all other locations, the degree of Prevention and Protection afforded by the facility can never be high enough to afford 100% guarantee of today being just like yesterday. Government civilian employees must be properly prepared to respond to extreme workplace violence. ALICE is the best tool available to ensure this group of public servants are ready should the unthinkable occur.

City Council members are also welcome to attend the training.  Sessions are set up to accommodate approximately 30 persons at each event, so no RSVP is needed.  If you have any questions please contact me at 831-6129 or Officer Huse at 831-6134.
