Randolph Police to Offer Active Shooter Response Training Course Next Week

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace would like to remind residents that the Randolph Police Department will offer community members a training session on reacting to active shooter incidents next week.

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training is meant to prepare civilians for the possibility that they could be targeted in a violent intruder event, giving them knowledge to help save their own lives and the lives of others before law enforcement arrives.


Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.


Randolph Intergenerational Community Center, 128 Pleasant St.


The Randolph Police Department is offering the two-hour class free of charge.

Participants will learn strategies about how to prepare for and respond to being confined inside a building during a violent intruder event. In addition, information will be provided about how to help law enforcement in such situations and limit casualties.

Individuals, businesses, churches, community groups and other types of organizations are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The course was developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center at Texas State University, and was designed around the “Avoid, Deny, Defend” strategy.

To sign up for the training session, please contact Randolph Police Commander John Hamelburg at johnhamelburg@randolphmapolice.com or call 781-963-1212.

Any groups that would like to book the training session outside of Oct. 17 can also contact Commander Hamelburg to express their interest.
