(Ankeny, IA) -- Police remind people there are classes available to teach how to respond to an active shooter situation. Ankeny Police Department has a 2 hour active shooter course called Violent Intruder Program (VIP). Ankeny Police Sargent Corey Schneden says the classes teach how a business, school, church and others can make their environment more safe. People can call Ankeny PD to schedule a class. U.S. Department of Homeland Security training recommends a Run, Hide, Fight approach which many police departments courses teach.
