Targeted Violence (Active Shooter) Prevention Program
Over the past few years there has been a steady increase in individuals looking to commit mass casualty attacks (active shooters) at our schools, businesses and houses of worship. These attacks are occurring more frequently and, with each new event, becoming deadlier than the last. Sadly, no region seems to be immune from this phenomenon. The resulting effect on the public has been a climate of fear and intimidation. These incidents cause an incredible amount of suffering for the victims and damage the reputation of our schools, businesses and communities.
What you will learn from our presenters:
- Stopping violence before it occurs.
- Identifying a system for preventing acts of targeted violence, mass killings.
- FBI recommendation of a system or method as a best practice.
- Using a team of trained individual who meet regularly to discuss persons of concern.
