With the school violence in Florida, people have asked what Fort Collins Police Services does for the safety of students in our community. They do a lot including ‘Active Shooter Training’ held in our school buildings so officers are familiar with the facilities. There is also ‘Response to School Violence’ training. Officers partner with Poudre School security teams to create a culture of safety in our schools. CLICK HERE to read much more about what FCPS does to keeps our kids safe.

Also, Fort Collins-based company Angel Armor has engineered a portable shield that can protect students from bullets fired from handguns while remaining light and thin enough for a backpack. Fox 31 reports that they design body armor and car armor for law enforcement and have also designed a portable shield for civilians.
