Active Threat Response Training Resources

Publication Date: 2016
Abstract: Given the increasing number and consistency of active shooter incidents, thousands of first responders, including police/law enforcement, campus public safety officials, and security officers, have undertaken active shooter or active threat trainings. These trainings evolve as best practices are updated to reflect new information that emerges from incidents. Anecdotal evidence suggests that participation in these trainings is having a positive impact on first responders. We have developed a comprehensive list of active threat trainings that include in-person trainings, webinars, videos, and online courses. The list also provides information about target audiences, length, and cost.
