ALICE: Armed Intruder, Campus/Workplace Violence


Follow A.L.I.C.E. Principles

Alert, listen for/or receive specific, real-time information and notify Campus Police at ext. 4111 or 913-469-2500 or call 911.

Lockdown or shelter in place by locking down and barricading entry points. Get low to the floor, spread out and turn off lights.

Inform, listen for or give real-time updates by any communication means possible.

Counter the attacker as a last resort by movement, noise, distraction and SWARM.

Evacuate, get out and put distance between you and killer. Do not go to your car, evacuate on foot. Seek assistance at a Rally Point, stay alert to college information.

No matter where you are, be familiar with your surroundings and know your escape routes. Don’t be an easy target!

When faced with a violent intruder, increase your chances of survival by remembering your ALICE options. Never give up.

Robbery

Your personal safety is of primary importance. Nothing you have or the college has is worth your life or the life of others. If you are robbed:

  • Try to remain calm.
  • Hand over money or possessions when asked.
  • Comply with any reasonable demands the robbers make.
  • Don’t argue.
  • Don’t fight and don’t use a weapon.
  • Look at the robber and note tattoos, scars, prominent features, clothing and weapons so you can describe them to the police.
  • Watch what the robber touches. The police may be able to get fingerprints.
  • Tell the robber if you need to reach or move in any way so they are not startled.
  • If possible see which way the robber leaves and whether or not he/she is in a vehicle or on foot.
  • Don’t follow or chase the robber.

As soon as you can do so safely, call the JCCC Campus Police Department at ext. 4111 or 913-469-2500 or if you are at an off campus location dial 911.

Remember, your personal safety is of primary importance. Do not do anything that might jeopardize your safety or increase the risk or level of
injury to yourself or others.
