Active shooter prevention and rapid response

1. Fight/Shoot and neutralize the threat
2. Triage/Treat the injured

An example from Dr. Kent Ingle from Southeastern University in central Florida.

the sentinel program

"Basically what the program is is it authorizes highly trained– and I have to emphasize this– it’s highly trained faculty and staff to carry concealed firearms for the sole purpose of engaging– and only engaging– an active shooter that would walk on our campus.”

132 hours of training (more than most law enforcement officers!). That sounds like a “well regulated militia” to me.

"Once you complete that training, you are sworn in as a deputy sheriff and so you are a law enforcement officer."

"And what it does is it creates that layer. So, we have stationed, literally around the entire campus, the Sentinels who are ready, again, at any moment to engage.”

"And think about this – the purpose of this is to rapidly respond. The Department of Justice does studies on this all the time. When that 911 call goes out because somebody is already engaged in taking life... Well, it takes– they’ve studied that it takes five to seven minutes before law enforcement can actually get onto the campus and begin to respond. The average rampage is only about three minutes long.”

“… to me it’s all about understanding this world we live in. We will never as long as we live in this world be able to eradicate evil–that comes into the human heart. But we have a responsibility to respond and to do everything we can to combat that evil… we have to understand that we have to protect the people that God has put into our responsibility, into our sphere of influence, and say, 'Hey, we’re going to stand up and do what we can to protect you and provide that environment so that you can fulfill and feel safe and secure.’”

"That’s what leadership is all about. God puts people in your care and it is your responsibility, from a contextual standpoint, to do everything you can to provide for those people in your care. And part of that is protection, and making sure they are safe so that they can fulfill what you are called to do in coming alongside them and empowering their lives.” Southeastern University in Florida.

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
