NEXT CHAPTER SESSION
Event: NYPD Shield - Active Shooter Incidents Class
Speaker: Charles Ambio, NYPD Counter Terrorism Division
Date: January 19, 2017 from 3:00 - 5:30 pm
Location: Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company, 2 Park Ave, NY, NY 10016
Summary: Active shooter situations are unpredictable, evolve quickly and vary greatly from one attack to another. An Active Shooter is defined as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. In some recent attacks in NYC and elsewhere, these workplace violence events spill beyond the intended victim. This program presented by the NYPD Counterterrorism Bureau will explore recommendations to mitigate the risks from active shooter attacks. The NYPD developed this program based on analysis of past active shooter incidents and careful reviews of previous studies. While this training session is tailored to building security personnel it also provides guidance to individuals, including managers and employees, so they can prepare to respond to an active shooter situation.
