CRASE - Free Civilian Training

August 5, 2016 11:49 AM

CRASE, an intriguing acronym, stands for Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events. It's probably not something any of us ever imagined we could use.  But now we know, these tragic, senseless events could happen anywhere, anytime. So we ask ourselves if there is anything we can do to prepare for the unimaginable. And the answer is, "yes, there is".

The Madison Police Department has been offering free training in Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events since 2015.  The training has already been presented to many businesses, schools and churches in Madison and has been extremely well received.  Now, individuals in the general public will have several opportunities to participate in CRASE training conducted by our experts in the field. The first of these events takes place on Thursday August 11, 2016 from 6 – 9 pm at the Madison Police Training Center 5702 Femrite Dr.  Future opportunities will be presented on November 10, 2016 and February 09, 2017. Pre-registration is not required.  An email RSVP to PO Matt Magolan is appreciated.  Contact Officer Magolan at
