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.​
