The training is a two-hour course that involves a classroom section of learning tactics and a scenario-based section to practice body form and mindset. The course is open to any Wright State student, staff or faculty member.

Wright State Chief of Police David Finnie described the ALICE training as a practical program that is easy to learn and embrace.

“You just want to stop the threat. It breaks down how people think. It gets into your paradigm and gets you thinking in how to protect yourself and not be a victim,” he said.
