State Patrol Offers Civilian Active Shooter Training



February 16, 2018 (lincoln, Neb.)  — In light of recent events, the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) would like to remind Nebraska schools, businesses, and other groups that NSP offers civilian training for active shooter situations.


The Civilian Response to Active Killer Events (CRAKE) program was developed to provide information on awareness and steps a civilian can take to increase their safety in these horrific situations. CRAKE focuses on three steps: Avoid, Deny, and Defend.


“This training is designed specifically for civilians to know how to react in the worst situations,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “The CRAKE course helps Nebraskans be more prepared and have a plan of response to increase their likelihood of survival.”


NSP instructors are stationed across the state to be able to provide this training to any business, group, or school that requests it. The CRAKE courses are offered free of charge.


“As we’ve seen around the country, every active shooter situation can be different,” said NSP Training Academy Sergeant Paul Hagen. “We want to equip people with the mindset and thought process to help them realize what’s happening, be decisive, and act.”


If your school, business or other group is interested in requesting a CRAKE presentation from the Nebraska State Patrol, reach out to your local troop area office:


Troop A – Omaha – 402-331-3333                            Troop D – North Platte – 308-535-8047
