SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Focusing on safety, the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) at Texas State has announced an unprecedented partnership.
Walmart, the world’s largest retailer in revenue, is working with ALERRT for new training material for more than one million employees. It will teach them how to deal with workplace violence.
ALERRT’s active shooter training program is well known. Now, the Avoid Deny Defend program will teach Walmart employees.
It will be a multimedia training program outlining what to do in the case of violence in a store or office.
In a sign of the times, similar videos have been making the rounds across the nation.
Officials with ALERRT say the material for Walmart break rooms will be available starting in a couple weeks. The program will also include access to an app program.
