Students will utilize empirical data on school active assailant events over the past 20 years, conducting a detailed threat analysis. This highly engaging module will force officers to differentiate between school active assailant events and other mass murder incidents. This module will expose attendees to data and case studies, allowing students to assess K-12 active shooter assailants, the planning process, location of attacks, duration of attacks, consequences, and resolutions of these events. The totality of information will be used to empower students with the knowledge and confidence to end the threat and save lives.
K-12 facilities experience unique challenges when implementing options-based response programs. These challenges stem from a top-down approach to infrastructure improvement and policies directed toward addressing critical violent incidents on campus. In many cases, SROs and local law enforcement officers are responsible for delivering training to staff members without any prior knowledge of site-specific limitations in security infrastructure, communication assets, or emergency response protocols. This module will give officers historical insight on why a lockdown-only approach is no longer aligned to best practices and how to deliver options-based response curriculum to educators in a responsible and trauma informed manner. Officers will explore the L.E.W.I.S. model for assessing K-12 campuses in order to deliver site-specific training and leverage staff buy-in to create successful options-based response programs.
