Gov. Youngkin release over $2 million for rapid response training

Governor Glenn Youngkin announced the release of $2.4 million for statewide advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training.

The funds will be used as a component of the Department of Criminal Justice Services Active Attack Program.

The program educates first responders as well as civilians on response to active shooter emergencies.

The program embraces a whole community approach by providing consistent, evidence-based training to all law enforcement agencies and civilians to neutralize and survive attacks.

All law enforcement agencies, private and public learning institutions and faith-based groups are eligible to register for in person trainings hosted statewide or virtually.

This is a unified attempt to provide citizens and law enforcement with the best state of the art training and research.

Training is in preparation, response and recovery in the event of an active attack.
