THE ACTIVE SHOOTER

2 REASONS FOR INACTION IT IS HUMAN NATURE TO MINIMIZE
IT WON’T HAPPEN HERE PSYCH CENTER IF IT HAPPENS HERE, IT WON’T HAPPEN SOON IF IT HAPPENS SOON, IT WON’T HAPPEN TO ME IF IT HAPPENS TO ME, IT WON’T BE BAD I’M INSURED WE DON’T WANT TO BE SEEN AS OVERREACTING WE ARE A UNIVERSITY, WE VALUE THE INDIVIDUAL, LIKE TO GIVE 2ND CHANCE, BELIEVE PEOPLE CAN CHANGE/LEARN, AND BELIEVE WE CAN REASON OUT ALL PROBLEMS. THE FACT IS THESE ARE RARE INCIDENTS

8 ATTACK RELATED BEHAVIOR
GRUESOME WRITING HIT LISTS DRAWING UP PLANS SCOPE OUT THE SITE FREQUENT VIOLENT WEB SITES ACQUIRE WEAPONS SKILL ENHANCEMENT

9 STRATEGIES TO MINIMIZE VIOLENCE
KNOW THE NECESSARY INGREDIENTS TIME OPPORTUNITY ABILITY/ACCESS/KNOWLEDGE/SKILL SET-THEY WILL COMMUNICATE THEIR EXPERTISE DESIRE-THEY WIIL EXPRESS THEIR DESIRE (PROBING BEHAVIOR, FREE SPEECH, “HE IS JUST THAT WAY”) STIMULUS-A TRIGGERING EVENT OR SERIES OF EVENTS WHICH MAY HAPPEN RIGHT AWAY OR YEARS LATER

10 CREATE OBSTACLES TO INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR
TARGET HARDEN A PLAN OFFICE LAYOUT QUESTION-WHY ARE THEY ASKING ME THIS? PROJECT CALMNESS, MOVE AND SPEAK BE AN EMPATHETIC LISTENER-THEY MAY JUST WANT SOMEONE TO LISTEN, THEY MAY HAVE A LEGITIMATE COMPLAINT, NEED TO KNOW SOMEONE CARES, AND TRY TO BREAK LARGE PROBLEM DOWN TO SMALL ONES. MAINTAIN RELAXED ATTENTIVE POSTURE, TRY TO POSITION YOURSELF AT A RIGHT ANGLE, NOT DIRECTLY IN FRONT USE DELAYING TACTICS TO GET PERSON TO CALM DOWN, “CAN I GET YOU A GLASS OF WATER,” “WON’T YOU SIT DOWN,” “COME INTO MY OFFICE.” ASK FOR SUGGESTIONS, “WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE ME?” LEAVE YOURSELF A WAY OUT CONFRONT-TELL THEM IT’S INAPPROPRIATE, CALMLY TALK ABOUT CONSEQUENCES COMMUNICATE-TELL SOMEBODY

11 ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATIONS
IF OUTSIDE OR INSIDE YOUR BUILDING GO TO A ROOM THAT CAN LOCKED, LOCK IT, CLOSE WINDOWS, TURN OUT LIGHTS (NO SUCH THING AS A LOCK DOWN) MAKE SURE NO ONE IS VISABLE FROM OUTSIDE CALL 911-ADVISE OF LOCATION DO NOT CALL TO ASK IF THIS IS REAL! STAY THERE UNTIL YOU CAN CONFIRM A POLICE OR LEGITIMATE CAMPUS OFFICIAL GIVES YOU THE ALL CLEAR IF YOU DECIDE TO LEAVE THE BUILDING HAVE AN ESCAPE ROUTE IN MIND DO NOT CARRY ANYTHING IN YOUR HANDS KEEP YOUR HANDS VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OF ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER YOU ENCOUNTER DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RESCUE ANY INJURED PEOPLE-ADVISE POLICE OF THEIR LOCATION DO NOT LEAVE CAMPUS UNTIL ADVISED TO DO SO BY LAW ENFORCEMENT

12 IF SHOOTER ENTERS YOUR OFFICE OR CLASSROOM
DIAL 911 IF POSSIBLE-IF YOU CAN’T TALK LEAVE PHONE OFF THE HOOK IF YOU CAN’T HIDE, NEGOTIATION MIGHT BE POSSIBLE OVERPOWERING WITH FORCE SHOULD BE A LAST RESORT IF SHOOTER LEAVES, GO TO A SAFER PLACE AND DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING IN THE ROOM

13 WHAT TO EXPECT FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT
THEIR FIRST PRIORITY IS TO STOP THE SHOOTING AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE NORMALLY RESPOND IN TEAMS OF FOUR MAY BE IN HELMETS, BULLETPROOF VESTS, OTHER RIOT GEAR, OR MAY JUST BE IN REGULAR UNIFORM MAY HAVE RIFLES, SHOTGUNS, HANDGUNS DRAWN, AND MAY USE TEAR GAS FOLLOW ANY INSTRUCTIONS THEY GIVE YOU PUT DOWN ANYTHING IN YOUR HANDS AND KEEP YOUR HANDS VISABLE IF YOU KNOW WHERE THE SHOOTER IS, TELL THEM DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO AID THE INJURED REMEMBER THIS IS A CRIME SCENE, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE UNTIL AREA IS SECURED AND WITNESSES CAN BE ACCOUNTED FOR AND INTERVIEWED. REMAIN WHERE YOU ARE INSTRUCTED TO GO.
