In December, the Bluffton Police Department will offer Citizen Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) Training to the general public. The free classes will be taught at the Bluffton Police Department, located at 101 Progressive Street in Buckwalter Place. The classes will be held on Thursday, December 6, 2018 and Wednesday December 12, 2018. Both classes will be held from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Participants only need to attend one class. The class involves participants learning what to do if they are in a church, restaurant, mall or any other public place and an active shooter situation arises. Participants are not taught police tactics, but rather techniques that will teach the individual how to survive such an event until law enforcement arrives, as well as, learn to be more aware of their surroundings. Class size is limited to 30 students per event. If you are interested in participating in a class, please RSVP to Bluffton Police Community Relations Manager Joy Nelson, at email@example.com or 843-706-4542.
