Many students, faculty, staff and visitors have asked what to do if they found themselves in an active shooter scenario.  As unlikely but frightening as it may be, the Campus Police Department encourages everyone to consider the options that are available to protect oneself.

Late in 2015 the Department of Homeland Security released a Planning and Response to an Active Shooter guide.

The Department of Homeland Security, in concert with the Houston Mayor's Office, produced an active shooter training video, entitled "Run, Hide, Fight!" This six-minute video, endorsed by multiple Federal agencies, dramatizes an active shooter incident in the workplace, exemplifying the unpredictability and quick evolution of active shooter situations. Its purpose is to educate the public by demonstrating response actions during such an incident so that they can prepare for an active shooter situation.
