Surviving a Mass Shooting: Law Enforcement Officer Train-the-trainer
Officers will learn how to instruct citizens in the protecting Your Family in Public Places course utilizing the research-based model found in Mass Shootings:Six Steps for Survival. This program specifically designed for law enforcement personnel will teach officers from around the country how to properly instruct the Protecting Your Family in Public Places course. In the initial portion of the presentation John Matthews author of Mass Shootings:Six Steps to Survival discusses how to pre-plan with family members in an age-appropriate manner prior to ever leaving your home. The second segment of the seminar focuses on how everyone is responsible for their own safety and specific steps that can be taken to improve one’s situational awareness and limit danger. In the final portion of the presentation the ESCAPE model will be presented. This easy-to-remember six-step model is based on over thirty years of data on the successful actions taken and decisions made by victims of public attacks. Officers will receive all curriculum, materials and access to a secured instructors portal which will allow them to continue to provide potentially life-saving information to the public long after the initial seminar has concluded.
