Because active shooter situations are often over before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be ready to respond to an active shooter situation.
The UM Police Department is dedicated to the safety of everyone at the University of Montana and the Missoula College. Officers cannot be everywhere, so we rely on you, our community, to be our eyes and ears.
Trust your instincts and report anything that does not seem right. Here we provide some resources to help keep you safe.
