Police Training At Marian University

by Amber Ferrari | Jul 08, 2014

police carIndianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Hostage Negotiation Team visited Marian University on July 8 to lead active hostage negotiation training scenarios. The Marian University Police Department participated in the training class in partnership with IMPD.

The training ran from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and focused on navigating hypothetical situations involving active shooting and hostage negotiation.

Marian University Police Department is always training to better serve the community it protects. Scott Ralph, director of campus safety and chief of police services said, “This is something that we definitely don’t want to occur, but we want to be fully trained and ready for any situation. We have 40 hours of education every year for that very reason.”

Several police vehicles and a large communications van set the scene for the training outside of Doyle Hall. Marian University extends many thanks to IMPD for offering their time and talent, and to the Marian University Police Department for working to make our campus the safest place possible for faculty, staff, and students.
