A shooting is different than a gunfight. Both are dangerous, but the latter requires a shift in mindset for winning a prolonged firefight. Active shooters, coordinated gang members, and ISIL sympathizers continue to demonstrate the scale of violence that small, but capable adversaries can inflict.
Combating these complex attacks requires lethal force, but a poor understanding of tactics can result in unnecessary loss of life and political consequences. If a responder has not been properly trained to think under stress, he could make a decision that negatively impacts a community for generations.
We build responders capable of embracing the complexity of a coordinated attack. Utilizing lessons learned from Special Operations Forces in high threat environments, students are taught the doctrinal variables that create both advantages and consequences at the tactical level.
