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 7 Second Lockdown- Idaho Falls (Moved from the July date)

Course Number: R4230E

Course Description:

Why attend The 7 Second Lockdown?

When it comes to a lockdown, schools must move faster!

On average, teachers take approximately 38 seconds to close and lock their doors and move students into a hide position. The 7 Second Lockdown procedures enable your school to lockdown in 7 seconds by following 4 simple progression & proficiency drills that last only 3 minutes and 30 seconds from start to clear and won’t scare anyone or disrupt the educational process!

Teachers don’t need to be afraid. They just need to move faster.

The 7 Second Lockdown treats the teacher as the hero of the story and builds on the inherent qualities of our teachers instead of working against them. It doesn’t use the fear of violence or failure to motivate teachers. The 7 Second Lockdown conditions them to be able to accomplish the few necessary and critical lifesaving tasks in 7 seconds or less.

Adopt The 7 Second Lockdown Procedures and learn the following:
  • The art of utilizing progression drills to quickly enhance skills.
  • The two elements that make a perfect lockdown.
  • Why you should hold a lockdown drill for no longer than 3 minutes.
  • Tips, tricks, and hacks used by others to speed up the lockdown.
  • How to respond to violence that is close/far from your classroom.
  • The 3 strategies used by teachers who have survived a school attack.
  • 5 critical reasons why school attacks demand a faster lockdown.
  • Assessing the protective quality of each classroom door.
