Pella Police Officers Shawn Veenstra and Matt Huston have specialty training called A.L.I.C.E which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and/or Evacuate. Officer Huston who is also the Student Liaison for all schools in Pella, tells KNIA/KRLS News that the purpose of the program is to quickly stop any violent person who might enter a school. Huston adds that in an ideal situation, someone would identify the intruder immediately, and have the ability to alert the entire school of a lockdown, with the goal of getting as much accurate information to the masses, increasing the chances of saving lives, and apprehending the suspect.
