In light of the recent increase in mass shootings across the country, ASU Police are offering a program for students, staff and faculty called "Shots Fired." It is a one hour presentation that covers specific actions persons should take if they find themselves caught in an active shooter situation. Although the focus is on campus, the techniques taught are applicable in any environment, movie theater, mall, church or synagogue, office setting, etc.

If you have a class, club or organization that would like to schedule this presentation, please contact Lt. KC Mitchell at 262-2150 or via e-mail at
