Grants to USA and territories government agencies, Indian tribes, IHEs, community groups, and for-profit, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations for programs to improve the safety of the general public and law enforcement officers. Funding is intended to support training that prepares officers and other first responders to safely and effectively handle active-shooter and other violent threats. The 2020 PASS program will fund an applicant to train at least 20,000 first responders through scenario-based, multidisciplinary training classes.
With this funding, the COPS Office supports projects that allow for the identification and expansion of promising practices and produces knowledge products that follow the principles of good guidance:
Training should be available to any jurisdiction in the U.S. and delivered in the desired location of the requesting law enforcement agency. The target audience for the delivered training is a multidisciplinary team of first responders, which includes law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services (EMS), dispatchers, medical personnel, facility security, emergency management, and any other professionals who may reasonably by key to a successful integrated response to an active shooter event. The training provider should be able to assist the requesting law enforcement agency in determining which responders make the most sense to be included in a multidisciplinary class.
