INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana State Police is offering a program to teach schools and businesses across the state how to better prepare for and respond to an active shooter incident.

The (Terre Haute) Tribune-Star reports that the agency's "Unarmed Response to Active Shooter Events" program uses presentation materials and learning aids developed for corporate environments, schools, school buses and individuals.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Joe Watts tells the newspaper that the agency has mainly conducted the training at schools. But he says some area businesses, including physician offices and clinics, have also requested and received the training.

The agency's Putnamville District has brought its active shooter instruction to about 25 schools and educational facilities, three medical clinics and three corporate offices.
