Approximately 50 people gathered at the Hull-Daisetta ISD Auditorium, on March 2nd, as Officer Linda Longoria, of the Daisetta Police Department and full-time Deputy with Liberty County Sheriff's Office presented a class entitled Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events.

 

Longoria has served as a telecommunications operator (dispatch), for both Liberty County Sheriff's Office and the City of Liberty Police Department but, more recently, serves as training coordinator, peace officer, and instructor.  Longoria has served in several different areas of law enforcement over the past seven years.

 

The CRASE class is designed to challenge civilians to think outside of the box when confronted with something as frightening and stressful as being caught in an active shooter situation.  While the media focuses mostly on school shootings, it's important to know that an active shooter can appear virtually anywhere and at any time - not only in a school.  Deputy Longoria focused on actions that civilians could take to improve their chances to survive and to help save the lives of others as well.

 

Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader has made this training available to all civic organizations, church groups, schools, and workplaces of all types and the class may be scheduled simply by contacting the Liberty County Sheriff's Office.

 

"I believe the sheriff is doing a really great thing by making this training available to the general public," said Daisetta Police Chief Mike Parrish.  "The sad truth is that active shooter situations have become far too frequent and, with an average of 3 minutes before law enforcement arrives, this training provides civilians with the tools to begin protecting themselves while they wait for police to get on the scene."

 

"On behalf of the Liberty County Sheriff's Office and the Daisetta Police Department, I'd like to take a moment to thank Hull-Daisetta ISD for providing a venue from which the class could be taught and also express our gratitude to those who attended the class.  I believe that the thing a person takes away with them, after receiving this training, is a greater understanding of how so many have been lost during an active shooter event and how so many may have survived if they'd only been trained to do a few simple things."

 

The CRASE class will be offered indefinitely by the Liberty County Sheriff's Office.  If you'd like to schedule a class, please contact the sheriff's office at 936-336-4500.
