I get asked a lot of questions about Private Investigations techniques, tools, training - and even interesting stories! I also get asked questions about my C.L.E.E.T. Certified Training. It is my hope that this blog will instruct you in topics relating to the field of private investigation. It is also my hope that the topics and content you find here will help you navigate some of today's safety issues.

Police at School Shootings, One leg on the Table of Solutions

I have waited on the issue of school shootings until I could offer one leg on the table of solutions. To start, many of the school resource police officers that are assigned to schools permanently are not the go-getters of the police department. All too often the officer assigned to this position does not perform well on the streets. The 1st thing is this has to be changed to the type of officer that is a go-getter and possibly it will have to be on a rotation kind of duty for the officers that are known for being go-getters. That means the public is going to have to understand that this type of officer is not known for their political correctness. In simple words, they’re not really concerned about your child’s snotty nose. 2) We are going to have to take a lesson from our comrade’s the fireman. Fireman do not walk around at the firehouse in their bunker gear. Their bunker gear is stored in a locker or someplace they can get to quickly, put on their bunker gear and be dressed for firefighting. In the school a quality secure, safe could be installed, in the safe would be the following suggested gear, 1) A high quality bulletproof vest, meaning possibly Dragon skin with ceramic plate 2) A carbine type of weapon. This type of weapon comes in several different small caliber ammunition that match the ammunition carried by police officers in their firearm, 3) A Kevlar helmet 4) Flash bangs 6 to 8 of them 5) The public is going to have to become comfortable with the objective of meeting an armed assailant is to kill the assailant. It is not the political correctness term of neutralize.

The safe is going to need to be position in as good of as location in the school as possible and bolted to the floor and wall. Why, we still have to guard against burglaries inside the school. The safe would need to be able to withstand 7 to 10 minutes of attempts to open and steal the contents. I believe cameras should be placed on the safe and are monitored by an alarms system.

Police officers are not paid to get killed. In fact, a dead police officer in a shooting situation is useless. For officers to be able to meet the aggression of an active shooter they need some of the same tools that are currently used by SWAT members. With this kind of equipment, the lone school police officer could confidently meet more than just one assailant and successfully kill the assailant without being killed himself. Hopefully the end result is students are save and the police officer goes home to their family.
