Active Shooter Training Simulator

Recent national tragedies remind us that the risk is real. In many cases, active shooter incidents can be unpredictable in nature and can evolve quickly. Taking a few steps now can help you react quickly when every second counts.

Why is Active shooter Training important?

The frequency of active shooter incidents has increased in recent years, and these incidents have affected numerous places where citizens congregate, such as schools, workplaces, places of worship, shopping malls, public meetings, and movie theaters. Unfortunately, these events highlight the need to reduce the risk of active shooter incidents while improving preparedness and strengthening ongoing efforts intended to prevent future occurrences.

Why do police officers need to prepare for active shooter incidents?

Active shooter situations are dynamic and quickly evolve. Often, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the aggressive action of a shooter to mitigate harm to potential victims.
