Private Sector Preps for Active Shooters in 2019

Members Only Subscribe to read the full article

As we head into 2019, the U.S. does so as a nation that has become accustomed to active shooters, evidenced by horrific tragedies that occurred in 2018.  On Feb. 14, 2018, 17 people died at Parkland High School. On Nov 8, 2018, at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, CA, Marine veteran Ian David Long killed 12 people, including a Sheriff’s deputy who had entered the bar to try to stop him, before killing himself as police closed in. 

According to the FBI, there were 50 shootings that were designated as active shooter events in 2016 and 2017.  2017 was a record year, with 30 incidents reported. But despite these recent and high-profile events, a recent report on the Parkland shooting published by the Sun Sentinel points to systemic failures of leadership and preparation.
