Facts: Active shooter or active killer names the perpetrator of a type of mass murder marked by rapidity, scale, randomness, and often suicide. The United States Department of Homeland Security defines an active shooter as "an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.
Most incidents occur at locations in which the killers find little impediment in pressing their attack. Locations are generally described as soft targets, that is, they carry limited security measures to protect members of the public. In most instances, shooters commit suicide, are shot by police, or surrender when confrontation with responding law enforcement becomes unavoidable, and active shooter events are often over in 10 to 15 minutes. According to New York City Police Department (NYPD) statistics, 46 percent of active shooter incidents are ended by the application of force by police or security, 40 percent end in the shooter's suicide, 14 percent of the time the shooter surrenders and, in less than 1 percent of cases, the violence ends with the attacker fleeing.

"I recently attended Due Guard Securities, Active Shooter course. I was not sure what to expect and what if anything I would learn. This course was a huge eye opener. It really made me think about what would I do if I found myself in an active shooter situation. The video simulations that Due Guard showed were very intense and made me feel like I was actually in the active shooter situation. Due Guards training gave extremely useful tips on what to do to get yourself out of an active shooter situation, or if you can’t get out of the situation how to protect yourself. I highly encourage businesses to take this active shooter course, to prepare themselves for this type of situation and to have a plan in place on how your business would handle this type of event. "
