    Definition of an Active Shooter:
    An active shooter incident is defined by U.S. government agencies as “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.”

    Side Note 1: It would also include multiple shooters and is not only limited to firearms.

    Types of Active Shooters: (U.S. Homeland Security)

    1. Workplace/school
    2. Criminal
    3. Ideological (Terrorists)

    Side Note 2: It could also be a hybrid type of Active Shooter as we witnessed in San Bernardino County California, the terrorist committed the shootings against his coworkers.

    What to do when confronted with an Active Shooter / Threat:
    Run, Hide, Fight! Many consultants and trainers are for and against this concept for various reasons. Mostly monetary. I myself am a big advocate of this training video. It single handedly is the most effective training video in regards to Active Shooters / Active Threats. If you or your organization is on a shoe string budget, this is what you need to watch and study to increase your survivability. Below is the link to the video. I will also expound on each topic so you can understand their importance and why we would do this.

    Run, Hide, Fight Video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VcSwejU2D0

    Run: Why run? Running gives you time and options. It gives you a chance to survive. It is extremely difficult for a shooter to strike a moving target , period. Believe me from experience. Just like birds scatter right away when you approach them. We need to do the same, move and run fast. Remember when you were a kid playing dodge ball, did you just let your opponent nail you with the ball? Of course not. You moved or ran away to a different location. Make the bad guy work a little bit if they choose to make you a victim. The below link shows the Paris France Terrorist Attack / Active Shooters. Take note how some of the people who ran away survived. Additionally, firearms do malfunction, capitalize on this and save your life. At times luck does come into the equation. It’s important to take advantage of this.

    Watch the below link.

    Hide: We are all pretty good at this from playing hide and seek. We are hiding to avoid detection from the bad guy. If we avoid detection, we survive. Additional tips include, locking any doors if you’re in a room, barricade the door if time permits, turn off the lights, maybe close some blinds, silence cell phones and remain quiet. Don’t answer the door or move until rescued by police or the proper authority. Start to formulate a plan if you do have to fight.

    Fight: If you cannot run or hide, as a last resort, fight. This is very difficult for many people, none of us signed up to be instant security or police officers at work, school or in public. The fact of the matter is that you have an immediate life or death problem. You owe it to your families to give it your best shot and not be a victim. You owe it to all of those who have died before us in previous active shooter incidents to fight. Even better, if multiple people around you are fighting the bad guy this increases all of your chances of surviving. Be creative, use whatever object can make

    the perfect weapon to take the bad guy down or out of commission. It can be done!!!! Look at what those American Servicemen accomplished in France. They prevented multiple casualties and displayed to the rest of the world why America is and always will be a great country.

    Case Study # 5:

    A successful musician on the Chicago music scene was on his United States summer tour. During a show in the upper Midwest this musician was attacked while on stage performing. As the show came to a hault the musician had to fight to defend himself. Security in front of the stage missed the attack and the musician was alone. Finally, able to escape the musician fled the stage as the venues security team finally secured the attacker. After a short break the band and musician resumed playing to complete the show.

    A few days after the show Secure Options Consulting received a call inquiring about our executive protection services. We had a meeting with the musician and his management team and presented our background, knowledge, skills and abilities in executive protection. We signed a short term contract with the musician.

    We were on the road quickly with the band and musician. Our budget was extremely thin for this client. We assigned 1 executive protection agent with the musician and 1 executive protection agent to conduct investigations and proactive security measures. I was in our command post monitoring the movements of the band and musician in conjunction with the protection team. As always we’re quick with a robust solution due to our industry leading rapid planning process for executive protection work.

    Our investigative agent while on the move on a tour bus began conducting a threat assessment on the client via, open source, social media and other sources of information. Additionally, this executive protection agent would conduct a physical security assessment of the upcoming concert venue, liaison with venue security to enhance security measures. Lastly this executive protection agent assumes the role and responsibilities as the advance agent. Our close executive protection agent was assigned to the client full time and monitored him closely. This executive protection combination lasted for several months. We found that having an executive protection agent conducting risk assessment, risk analysis, threat assessment and working closely with venue security was worth its weight in gold. Not only did this agent liaison with venue security, this executive protection agent conducted threat identification training with the venues security staff. This in turn built a partnership with the venues security as well as enhanced our executive protection operations to come in the future.
