Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

We've watched them with horror on the news - in churches, in schools, in restaurants. Active shooter incidents are often unpredictable and evolve quickly. In the midst of the chaos, anyone can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident. Now a free class being offered by the Clayton Police Department to help you prepare for and survive an active shooter incident.

We held our first class on Feb. 1st and Clayton Police Training Coordinator Sgt. Joel Garner received TONS of interest for additional classes.


We'll schedule a new date ASAP. 
Location: St. Ann Catholic Church
4057 US 70 Business West
Thank you to the more than 100 people who registered, you'll be emailed with an update on the new date. 

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course is designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT, the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training at Texas State University. It provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Led by Clayton Police Sgt. Keith Garner, topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and considerations for conducting drills.
Again, this is a free class but registration is required. The March class will be limited to the first 100 people who register. Participants should be at least 16 years of age to attend. Attendees will be required to show proof of identification to help to confirm registration prior to entering the class on Saturday morning.
