Advanced Tactical Operations

Law Enforcement Active Shooter Emergency Response

  Terrorism involving active shooter attacks on population centers has become part of law enforcement officers’ awareness; however, increased awareness of a problem does not ensure preparedness or appropriate response tactics. This course addresses technical aspects of planning and implementing a rapid law enforcement deployment to an active shooter incident through classroom presentations, hands-on performance-based field training, and scenario-based practical exercises.

Professional Disciplines
Law Enforcement

The target audience for the Direct Delivery version of this course involves individuals who respond to or support the response to any type of active shooter incident including:

The target audience for the Train-the-Trainer version of this course is established trainers/instructors in academies, agencies or departments who are seeking to train participants by teaching the Indirect version of this course using course materials provided by NCBRT.
