In partnership with Indiana educators and local law enforcement, ISP conducts various training sessions throughout Indiana. Training sessions help schools and law enforcement agencies establish partnerships necessary for coordinating a unified and effective response to various incidents.
Joint Training Sessions are held in each of the Indiana State Police Districts. Each session features the "unarmed response" to an active shooter concept from an informational and a practical drill perspective. Sessions are scheduled by ISP District Public Information Officers in cooperation with local school and law enforcement personnel.
A training video developed by ISP is available at the Indiana Department of Education website at http://media.doe.in.gov/sservices/2013-06-25-isssa.html. The video has three segments: Basics of Threat Assessment, Unarmed Response to an Active Shooter and Bomb Threat Basics and Protocol.
ISP teaches Indiana educators how to conduct threat assessment audits. As set out in SEA # 1, conducting threat assessments in Indiana schools is a priority. The Indiana State Police will conduct training sessions on performing an appropriate threat assessment in a school setting.
Sessions will be scheduled and conducted in cooperation with the County Commissions referred to in SEA # 1. An audit tool will be presented and training will be provided on its use.
The Indiana School Safety Specialist Academy (ISSSA) provides ongoing, certified training and information on national and state best practices, as well as exemplary resources for school safety, security, intervention/prevention, and emergency preparedness planning.
