The Sandy Springs Police Department is holding an “active shooter” seminar on March 20 to individuals wanting to learn how to protect themselves if faced with an active shooter event.

The class is free to the public but because of limited space people must reserve a seat. Find out more at

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course offers “strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event,” according to SSPD.

Topics to be covered at the seminar include the “history, prevalence, the role of police, civil response options, medical issues and drills.”

Due to the violent nature of the seminar, children are not recommended to attend.
