The Role of Unarmed Security in Active Shooter Defense | 04 April 2018, 15:00 – 16:00 ET
Sponsored by the School Safety and Security Council
While active shooters are rare, they are more likely to occur than an airplane crash. Yet, flight attendants are trained to handle an evacuation, while most unarmed security staffs are not prepared to respond to an active shooter threat. In this webinar, the presenter will review concepts embraced by Fortune 500 companies, educational systems, and government agencies that can provide security managers with training guidelines to enhance their officers' awareness of and ability to prevent and mitigate active shooter attacks.

Recently Updated Standard:
Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations-Requirements with Guidance (PSC.1)
Consistent with ANSI requirements, the ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 Standard was evaluated by a technical committee comprised of industry users and managers, producers and service providers, as well as government, academia, and other interested stakeholders to consider possible changes based on applicable laws, regulations, international agreements, and/or other factors impacting the standard's use. Reaffirmation signifies that no substantive changes to the standard were necessary.
The PSC.1 Standard establishes a mechanism for private security providers and their clients to provide demonstrable commitment, conformance, and accountability to the principles outlined in the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers and the Montreux Document.
