City, Police Department to Host Active Intruder Awareness Training

The City of Fullerton and the Fullerton Police Department are taking a proactive approach to empowering individuals with an “Active Intruder Awareness Training,” on Thursday, April 14, from 6:00-7:15 p.m. at the Fullerton Community Center. Members of the public are invited to attend.


“The public has continued to reach out to us requesting active intruder training, following the events that occurred in San Bernardino last year,” explained Dan Hughes, Fullerton Police Chief. “Individuals and businesses are welcome to attend this workshop to learn how to better equip themselves in the event of an active intruder situation.”


Topics at the workshop will include a history of active intruder events, mitigating risks in schools and the workplace, and response strategies in the event of intrusion. A panel discussion featuring a question and answer session will also take place at the conclusion of the presentation. 


The training is free, open to the public, and registration is not required. Refreshments will be served. The Fullerton Community Center is located at 340 W. Commonwealth Ave. For more information, please contact Sergeant K. Hamel at khamel@fullertonpd.org or call (714) 738-6838.
