CRASE program

CRASE programIn light of what happened in Uvalde, some are wondering about programs available at the Odessa Police Department. This one has been around for about five years. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events program, also known as CRASE, is conducted by the Odessa Police Department to groups, businesses and churches seeking more knowledge about how to prepare for an active shooter situation. It also provides an assessment of where they stand in terms of preparation and what steps they could do to improve their safety.

A group of officers has been trained and certified by the American Crime Prevention Institute to conduct the training and assessments. The program is FREE. It was created soon after the Sutherland Springs church shooting back in 2017. The team gets annual refresher courses in the training and assessment, as mass shootings are always different and there are case studies for different types of events.

If you would like to schedule this training, contact Corporal Steve LeSueur at or call 432-335-3322.
