Active Harmer Response Class
The CU Boulder Police Department (CUPD) is hosting free active harmer response classes for faculty, staff and students. No registration is needed; simply show up ready to learn what to do in an active harmer situation, using a nationally-approved safety protocol.
This class will be offered Wednesday, Sept. 7, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., in the Kittredge Central multipurpse room. Walk-ins are welcome. If that date is not convenient, check out the class offering on Monday, Oct. 3, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., in the University Memorial Center (UMC) Aspen Rooms (285, 287, 289).
CUPD teaches the course using the Department of Homeland Security’s “Run, Hide, Fight” program. Instruction includes a combination of video, lecture and interactive discussion, with time to answer questions. In the aftermath of events like the King Soopers mass shooting in Boulder (March 2021), officers will be sensitive to triggering language and visuals.
The training highlights proactive response techniques developed by experts to increase the probability of survival in an active harmer situation. “CUPD is glad to be able to offer this free course once again,” said Commander Eric Edford, who is one of the instructors. “We’ve had positive feedback from past participants and feel this is something we can do to help instill a sense of security in our campus community.”
