You may see groups of officers in their police uniform or in plain clothes entering and exiting the EPA Complex on UNLV’s main campus during Police Services' annual active shooter training.

Jul. 17, 2017

 

As part of UNLV Police Services’ continued emergency response preparedness, the department will be conducting hostile intruder response training on July 20, July 27, August 3, and August 10. This drill is designed to help ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff.

The training sessions are scheduled from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the EPA Complex on UNLV’s main campus.

During the training, which features multiple scenarios, UNLV police officers enter a building after receiving a mock call from Police Services’ dispatchers of a gunman on campus and shots being fired. A mock shooter is hiding in one of the rooms of the EPA Complex. Officers quickly enter and clear each room in the building. The scenario ends after the mock shooter attempts to fire at officers before the officers apprehend the suspect.

Please be aware that during the training, you may see small groups of uniformed UNLV police officers and training personnel on campus engaged in realistic training scenarios using disabled, blue-tipped weapons with non-projectile blanks.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these training sessions, please contact Assistant Chief Jeff Green at 702-895-2642 or at [email protected].
