Example text

Although the attack in Beslan was not a traditional active shooter event as witnessed at Columbine, it was a school takeover by terrorists with the sole mission to kill as many people as possible, just not immediately. Just as law enforcement agencies can learn and adjust tactics from past events, so too can terrorist elements or lone wolf operatives. Al-Qaeda has warned they will kill American children, and terrorist training videos have been seized abroad showing training camps where attacks are being rehearsed on mock schools (Remsberg 2006).

The most important of these responders are the first several on the scene, who are tasked with locating, isolating, and neutralizing the ongoing threat. The training, then, must not be dependent on a homogenous, dedicated group of responders, but instead a concept and principle-based program enabling any officer to step up and be an effective member of an emergency ad hoc team. It should be noted here that in active shooter scenarios, this is the ultimate goal: to neutralize the ongoing threat and stop the killing as quickly as possible.
