Active Killer – Shooter Training
Civilian & Individual / Partner Officer Response
TDI teaches both law enforcement & civilian response to the active shooter/killer. Statistics show the majority of the time the problem is solved by civilians. Civilian response is fraught with its own perils which require some different thought processes and techniques. With the many armed competent civilians that carry firearms every day law enforcement needs to consider the possibility of running into a “good guy” as well as the active killer. Any civilian intervening in an active killer situation better realize that law enforcement is coming.
Classes held at the TDI Facility are for both civilian and law enforcement personnel. NASRO and Law Enforcement Agency hosted classes are generally for law enforcement only.
Classes listed on this sight will be marked as:
Civilian/Law Enforcement or Law Enforcement Only
The NASRO – TDI Active Shooter Class is 5 days. This class can be modified to fit the needs and time frames of an individual department or group. TDI recognizes law enforcement budget restraints, let TDI discuss your needs with you and we can come up with a viable program for your organization. Law Enforcement, Corporate Security, Church/Synagogue Safety/Security teams.
Note: Areas perceived to be “Gun Free” zones are at particularly high risk.

Overview of what this course covers:
Many in law enforcement are skeptical of the single/partner officer response. There are some valid fears and potential for injury, that same potential exists regardless of the response. Between data gathered by Ron Borsch (S.E.A.L. Academy) and the hundreds of successful force on force scenarios by TDI through the NASRO classes the single officer response is a perfectly viable response. However, not the only response. We believe in the multi-tiered approach including multiple patrol officers acting as a team and the Tactical Team (SWAT) response. Since only 25% of active shooters are stopped by law enforcement, other organizations responsible for large groups of people need to think about this type training as well.
Note: These individuals will be no contest to a well-trained, capable
law enforcement officer willing to perform the task necessary.
Although the individual and or partner officer response is the most viable initial response for law enforcement, it is not the only response. TDI along with many others recognize that no one response is always the answer. In most areas of the United States we have trained in the different tactical formations with 3 to 5 officers. This is still viable depending on your time frames. Time is the single most sensitive issue. We can not afford to wait.
