Active Shooting In School
There has been, on average, *1 school shooting every week in 2018
State of the art training, preparation and a dedicated armed security team can minimize the damage and save lives!
These episodes are financially, physically and emotionally disastrous to the organizations that are targeted. The key to reducing the damage caused to both human lives and financial loss is preparation. Advanced in-depth preparation and detailed planning could prevent your organization from being targeted or reduce the impact if an attack occurs.
The average response time of law enforcement to active shooter events is approximately 3 minutes (much faster than the average for standard 911 calls). This leaves the targeted organization, on average, 3 minutes to prepare, defend and protect potential victims.
How quickly and efficiently an organization responds during those 180 seconds is critical. How an organization plans, organizes, prepares, trains and practices in the preceding weeks, months and years is critical. A proactive security plan, protocols, physical design, monitoring equipment and mindset and training used by the organization can have a significant impact on how its members survive the attack.

This officer stopped a school shooter before anyone got hurt
An Illinois school resource officer was praised as a hero for intervening when a former student opened fire Wednesday morning at Dixon High School.

“Another example of the brave work performed by law enforcement every day. Lives were saved thanks to the heroic actions of school resource officer Mark Dallas,” Pence said on Twitter.
