Washington Navy Yard Attack

In order to effectively reduce the consequences and casualties from Active Shooter/Active Assailant events, we must understand the critical phases of the event. As identified by a number of US Government agencies the 7 phases of these types of crimes are (USSS 2018, FBI 2013);

· Fantasy phase

· Weapon acquisition

· Planning phase

· Attack initiation

· Victim reaction

· Responder interaction

· Grieving

Charlie Hebdo Attack Paris, France

120 seconds, the time it takes to read this article, the time it takes for the final 2 minutes of a football game, the time it takes to walk 100 yards, and the time it takes to fire 30 rounds from a semi-automatic rifle, reload a magazine fire 30 more rounds, reload fire 30 more rounds. Or the time it takes an attacker to stab 17 people in a hallway. So, you are wondering what is the point? The point is that regardless of the situation and despite the presence of armed intervention, the response of Law Enforcement, the expert…

Front entrance to Sandy Hook Elementary (Note the glass shattered)

Folks, as we are faced with another deadly attack on a school (Santa Fe, Texas), the hand wringing and questioning by lawmakers and decision makers continues with what some believe to be an unsolvable plague. The endless “news” conferences, the political debate about the instrument of choice, the “why” is this happening debates result in little or no effective solution to mitigating Active Shooter or Active Assailant events. For those of us that are in the business of addressing these events or responding to these attacks, the situation is maddening. Even those colleagues that have been at this for many…
