Wareham Police undergoing rigorous training for active shooter and mass casualty events


“The Wareham Police Department has taken a proactive approach regarding training and tactics around active shooter and mass casualty events.

Over the past several months, a team of Wareham Police officers along with firefighters from the Wareham and Onset Fire Departments have hosted a multi-agency active shooter training program. The training program is A.L.E.R.R.T (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training), an Active Attack Integrated Response Training Program (AAIR) www.alerrt.org. The Municipal Police Training Committee of Massachusetts (MPTC) has now adopted this training curriculum and it will be implemented in upcoming recruit academy classes across the Commonwealth.

Police, Fire, and EMS agencies including major cities and universities from across Massachusetts have attended this training hosted by the Town of Wareham. There are currently two (2) training sessions remaining in June. The training has included civilian role players from Wareham District Court and Water Wizz Water Park, all of whom will attend our CRASE (Civilian Response Active Shooter Event) course.

The Wareham Police Department would like to cordially invite the media to one of our scenario days either on June 6, 2024, from 4p-12a, or June 14, 2024, from 8a-4p. Attendees will be able to participate as role player(s) and be able to get a first-hand experience of this training. You will be able to video and photograph portions of the “live” scenarios.

If anyone is interested in attending or would like more information regarding this training please contact the lead instructor, Officer Calib LaRue: calib_larue@warehampolice.com or Sergeant Bryan Whalen: bmw@warehampolice.com.”-Wareham Police Department.
