Special Presentation: How to Escape, Survive and Understand an Active Threat

Cuyahoga Heights Police Department Active Threat Presentation

Active shooter or threat situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims.

Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.

Awareness, training and rehearsal of the following immediate actions will go a long way to increase the odds of surviving an active shooter incident. Please take the time to view and share this important information with your employees, friends and family members.

We the members of the Cuyahoga Heights Police Department have a COMMITMENT to serve and protect. We will fulfill our duties with professionalism and HONOR. We will take PRIDE in our service, and through our DETERMINATION, we will achieve excellence.
