"The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University was created in 2002 as a partnership between the University, the San Marcos Police Department and the Hays County Sheriff’s Office to address the need for active shooter response training for first responders.  Using more than $40 million in state and federal grant funding in the last fourteen years, the ALERRT Center has trained more than 80,000 police officers nationwide in dynamic, force-on-force scenario-based training. In 2013, the FBI partnered with the ALERRT Center at Texas State and named ALERRT their standard for active shooter response training.  FBI Special Agents now instruct the ALERRT curriculum across the United States and Territories helping prepare state and local officers while establishing local partnerships with their law enforcement colleagues."
