DTF Conference 2021- What Can We Learn from 20 Years of Active Shooter Incidents
In May of 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released Active Shooter Incidents: a 20-Year Review providing a compilation of active shooter incidents from 2000-2019. This session will focus on what we can learn from the FBI Active Shooter series of studies and information. What are the implications of this information for our houses of worship and faith-based organizations? How can we respond to reduce the loss of life?
