MSU hosting active shooter response training July 31 to Aug. 3
Montana State University will host its annual active shooter response training exercise for law enforcement officers on campus July 31 through Aug. 3.
During the training, there will be an increased police presence in the area of Langford Hall, which is located between College and Harrison streets near the newly built Rendezvous Dining Pavilion.
Members of the public may see police vehicles and officers in tactical gear with weapons. They will be part of the training exercise and should not be cause for alarm.
The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training will involve officers from University Police, the Bozeman Police Department and the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office. The course is provided around the country by instructors from Texas State University and is recognized by the FBI as the national standard for active shooter response training. More than 130,000 law enforcement and fire officials nationwide have received ALERRT training.
