Campus police at the university said they use ALICE to keep students safe.

The acronym stands for: alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate. They said it is used dynamically in each situation.

Officials said ALICE training addresses each component in detail through hands-on instruction of all five components.

"It's a lockdown on steroids," said NSU Police Captain, James Bell.

"But the lockdown is just the beginning - and we teach that. We also teach students what we need from them, what they get from us, confronting an active shooter and ultimately evacuating the situation. ALICE teaches them the safest way to do all of these things.”

Bell said that NSU has someone ready to teach ALICE training at any given time. All an instructor needs to do is call and there will be somebody there to teach during their class time.

"The assimilated drills take an hour to an hour and a half," said Bell.

"We have taught three classes so far this semester and it is a service the NSU Police Department offers to all instructors."
