Active Shooter and Workplace Violence Symposium

What would I do if they started shooting? This is the question you must be able to answer. We know the places well: Virginia Tech, North Charleston and San Bernardino. What would you do if faced with an Active Shooter Situation? An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined space or other populated area. In most cases, there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Most are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Because most incidents are over within minutes, you must be prepared to deal with the situation until law enforcement personnel arrive. Preparedness and awareness are the keys to helping protect your employees, your customers, and yourselves. This is why the Leon County Sheriff’s Office is proud to host the Active Shooter and Workplace Violence Symposium.
