Many law enforcement agencies and several schools trained together in an effort to be more alert for any shooting scenarios at schools.
The advanced law enforcement rapid response training (ALERRT) course is designed to prepare law enforcement officers to isolate, distract and neutralize an "active shooter".
The training was held at the former Stowers Hill Elementary School in Etowah County, and co-hosted by the Etowah County Sheriff's Office and Attalla Police Department.
"This class will put every deputy and officer on the same page no matter how many years of experience," says Instructor Ben Greene.
The course consists of two training days, the first takes place in the classroom.
The second day will consist of shooting and moving, threshold evaluation, concepts and principles of team movement, room entry techniques, and more.
