Summary
  • When it comes to violent incidents, we need to
    have a solid plan in place
  • Vital that we define our duties, plan our
    response, and train for the execution of our
    action plan
  • Must provide the needed logistics and tools for
    the activities that fall into our scope
  • Identify outside resources to provide what we
    cant
  • Need to be able to dispense knowledge efficiently
    through the use of standard procedures
