Jackson State University is committed to protecting the safety and welfare of employees, students, and the general public.  Therefore, the University has leveraged both State and Federal Homeland Security resources to provide online active shooter training for non law enforcement personnel.  The course is designed to reach a broad range of individuals so they can be prepared to respond in the event of an active shooter incident. 

All employees are expected to review and be familiar with the course material as well as test their knowledge via the online examination option provided.
