R4 How to Spot the School Shooter- Idaho Falls (Moved from July date)

Course Number: R4230E

Course Description:

Why attend how to spot the school shooter?

You can’t stop a threat if you don’t understand the threat!

School shooters are not attacking schools because of violent video games, easy access to guns, medication, or because they’re loners, been bullied, or have suffered personal trauma.

It’s just not true.

What is true about school shooters, and we’ve studied over 80 years of mass murderers in our schools, is that…

  • 100% take at least three months to plan and prepare.
  • 75% give off a public indicator before they attack.
  • 90% walk in through an open door (80% through the front door)!
  • 10% fight their way into the school.
  • 75% attack prior to 9:30 in the morning.
  • 7% target the officer in the school first.
  • 70% are known to the school.
  • 100% recon the school at least once prior to the attack.
  • 100% attack to meet a need.
  • 100% commit an act of targeted violence (not random violence)!
  • 100% fail to fire all their rounds before the attack ends.
  • At least 3 have visited Columbine prior to their attack.
  • At least 75 have referenced Columbine in their notes.
  • At least 7 have murdered family members prior to their attack.
  • Every school shooter, anywhere in the entire world, has traveled down the exact same Path to Violence and progressed through the exact same 4 Stages.
  • And so much more

It’s critical for police officers that you really understand how to spot the school shooter or you’ll waste your time with kids who are not a threat and miss the ones who really are a threat.

Police officers who attend this 1 day, fast paced training will learn the following:
  • How to spot those on the Path to Violence.
  • Identify what stage a student is on The Path to Violence.
  • Quickly assess a person’s current risk level with easy to utilize worksheets.
  • Distinguish normal from threatening behaviors in young people.
  • Assess (read) student behaviors and determine their true risk level…if any.
  • Identify behaviors that indicate the attack is imminent.
  • Effective techniques to mitigate and control a dangerous student.
  • Helpful steps to guide your school community to respond appropriately.
  • Protect your school and yourself against civil liability.
  • And so much more

R4 Surviving Violent Street Encounters- Idaho Falls CANCELLED LACK OF REGISTRATIONS

Course Number: R4139

Course Description:

This 16-hour seminar is designed to prepare law enforcement officers for violent encounters and threats. The instructors will discuss techniques that control stress responses so de-escalation strategies can be effectively applied. The seminar will not only deal with the latest research on how threats impact psychological and physiological responses, but will explore ancient survival traditions and why these traditions are relevant today. Case studies with audio and video recordings will be used to illustrate principles.

At the end of this program, students will:

  • Understand and recognize the physiological and psychological changes that occur when a person is suddenly threatened.
  • Understand how these psychological and physiological changes affect performance and the ability to survive.
  • Understand how physical training, mental imagery, tactical self-talk, breathing and centering improve stress inoculation, startle recovery and the ability to apply de-escalation techniques.
  • Understand how experiencing a sudden stressful situation can lead to a “high”, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Post Traumatic Growth.

The instructors, Charles Holt, Laura Russell and William Hladky, are retired Miami-Dade Police Officers with more than 80 years of combined experience. They bring a rare perspective to the class. Each instructor has been involved in deadly force encounters with armed attackers. Additionally, Detective Russell was shot while attempting to arrest a subject and Detective Holt was stabbed while detaining a mentally disturbed subject. These and other experiences give the instructors unparalleled credibility.
