School and Workplace Violence: Preparation and Response @ Brewer Police Department
Aug 19 @ 8:00 AM – Aug 20 @ 4:00 PM

National Tactical Officers Association
School and Workplace Violence: Preparation and Response

Agenda: Brewer ME School and Workplace Violence

    Course Overview

NTOA’s School and Workplace Violence course is designed to assist law enforcement officers and their communities in planning and preparing for active shooter and similar incidents. During class, public safety agencies will collaborate with the staff of organizations such as schools, churches, hospitals, factories, and other businesses to develop realistic plans, policies, and procedures to counter such threats. We encourage inclusion of public safety staff from fire departments, emergency medical services, and 911/communications services.The goal of this course is to prepare potential victims to protect themselves until law enforcement officers arrive. Participants from the various groups will learn and work together to ensure that everyone involved is on the same page. This course is unique in that it is customized to meet the needs of each requesting agency and its community. Class length can range anywhere from one to five days. A two-day class will cover the core topics. Follow-up classes can be arranged to include additional material. Topics covered in this course include: Lessons learned: A review of relevant incidents; The dynamics of active shooter incidents; The Decision Cycle; Law enforcement response: A review of current response tactics; Public safety response: Working with fire, EMS, 911, and emergency management; Threat assessment: Policies and procedures to help identify potential threats; Site surveys: Identifying and collecting critical information about potential targets to assist in responding to an attack; Security planning: Determining essential functions of physical security systems, including policies, procedures and hardware; Emergency planning: Developing credible policies and procedures around the paradigm, Run, Hide, or Fight; Vulnerability assessment: Looking at facilities through the eyes of an attacker to determine weaknesses; Drills and exercises. Instructors can help participants set up and run drills and exercises designed for their specific organizations and facilities. Note: Such practical training requires additional instructors and access to suitable facilities. A host agency may request that specific types of organizations or facilities be emphasized for example, law enforcement and K-12 schools. A law enforcement agency can request that School and Workplace Violence course content be taught in conjunction with the Patrol Response to Active Shooter (PRTAS) course, training officers specifically how to respond to active shooter and similar threats. Combining these courses for law enforcement personnel is an option, not a requirement. The cost of a class will be determined by its length and the material requested. ***Non-law enforcement personnel will pay the member fee as listed on the registration form.
