Bullard ISD will host an Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) active shooter training course from June 11 through June 14 at its Intermediate School campus. Led by the Department of Public Safety (DPS), Bullard ISD Police, along with law enforcement officers from surrounding areas and school districts, will participate in the training. 

The course is a two-day program and will be offered twice during that week. Because of the summer break, there are no students or staff in the building at this time.

Senate Bill 1852, in effect September 1, 2023, essentially mandates the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) to adjust the minimum training requirements so that all Texas Peace Officers must attend a minimum of 16 hours of ALERRT active shooter training per two-year training cycle. The Texas Commission On Law Enforcement (TCOLE) Active Shooter Response for School-Based Law Enforcement (TCOLE Course #2195) meets this requirement.
