Active Shooters and Mass Killing Situations
Class Date: April 24-25, 2013
Location: Trussville Civic Center, 5381 Trussville-Clay Road, Trussville, AL 35173
Sponsor: Federal Bureau of Investigations
Details: You and your command staff are invited to join me for a two-day conference to discuss the ever-growing problem of active shooters and mass killing situations.
No community is immune today from the impact of these events. And no one is more aware of the pressure to lead and effectively handle such a situation than the command staff at state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.
After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the FBI was asked to join a White House working group to find ways to help prevent and respond to active shooters and mass killing incidents. The FBI has played a role in supporting virtually every significant incident that has occurred in recent years. As a result, we will bring to you best practices and lessons learned from the departments affected by some of these events, as well as proven methods to help interdict such incidents before they occur.
In concert with our experts at FBI Headquarters, we have built a compact schedule based on topics identified by department executives who have had to live through such incidents; in essence, a short list of "if I had only known" materials.
To RSVP, contact Tammy Mathis at (205) 279-1409 or Anita Melton at (205) 279-1504, by no later than 04/19/2013.
