The police department offers three options to choose from in an active shooter situation— run, hide or confront as detailed above. The recommendations follow those of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The NYPD says that it’s important to have a planned escape route before attempting to get out and that confronting the attacker should be the last resort.

More resources including an online course are available on the DHS website.
