Understanding the Risks   

Active Shooter and Terrorist attacks follow predictable patterns. To understand the risks, we must be familiar with the latest violence trends.  The Lessons Learned from past incidents provides valuable insights of the motives and methods used by Active Shooters and terrorists.

The increase in international and domestic terrorism and the recurrence of Active Shooter attacks can have a profound effect on local communities. Hundreds of students have been killed in school-related shootings and educational facilities have been the target of terrorists for decades. Workplace violence remains a major employee concern. Who are the principle perpetrators? What is their Modus Operandi (MO)? How do they select their targets? How do they carry out their attacks? What are the associated liabilities?

Upon completion of this module you will have a clear understanding of terrorist and Active Shooters risks and the justification for improving personal security and preparedness.
