Bronx Clergy, Residents Receive NYPD’s Active Shooter Response Training

BRONX — With the increase of school and church shootings across the country, the NYPD is now providing training on how civilians, caught in such a situation, should respond.

This morning, New York City Council Member Andy King, joined NYPD’s Chief Nilda Hofmann, Community Affairs Bureau; members of 47th Precinct Community Affairs unit, and Dr. Rohann Wellington of North Bronx Seventh Day Adventist Church at the church to encourage Bronx clergy and residents attending NYPD’s Active Shooter Response Training, better known as A.L.I.C.E (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) Training.

The training is designed to address the threat of an active shooter and/or other violent critical incident at the workplace, on school grounds, college and university campuses, shopping centers, and churches.
