Train Yourself: Surviving An Active Shooter

This video was forwarded to me by a friend (a cop) retired from LAPD. I think it is so worthwhile that I’m posting it on my blog. I cannot stress how much a role training plays in surviving any emergency. This is an excellent example of resources for civilians to school themselves in survival tactics.

However, the video is graphic. There is blood and shooting–after all, that’s what it’s about. Please view this several times to plant the seeds of survival in your brain. With any luck, you’ll never need it. But if you do, I’d like to think that you got your training here.–Thonie

Community: #LASD Produces Active Shooter Video to Increase the Odds for Survival

#LASD Produces Active Shooter Video to Increase the Odds for Survival
Active Shooters continue to terrorize and inflict death and destruction to many innocent victims throughout the nation. With our Tradition of Service in mind, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has produced a realistic video presentation on Active Shooters.

The primary purpose of the video presentation is to offer preparedness and awareness training to the public at large and hopefully save lives in the event of an Active Shooter incident. This nine minute video presentation, which has been in production for nearly two years, is one of the most ambitious projects the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Video Production Unit (VPU) has ever produced. The video presentation features three vignettes inspired by true life events and introduces the viewer to concepts such as: cover and concealment, location awareness, and self-defense.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, as well as other public safety agencies throughout the nation conducts Active Shooter Training on a constant basis; however, most of these attacks end before law enforcement officers arrive to stop the threat.

As a result of this planning and preparedness, police agencies and community partners have gleaned a recent reduction in violent crimes. Although, Active Shooter incidents continue to happen, these acts of terror and destruction are rare.

Unlike other videos that are seen on YouTube and other social media websites, the goal of this LASD video presentation is to illustrate very realistic portrayals of these rare, but violent attacks. LASD’s use of special effects and realistic scenarios draw the viewer’s attention to personally connect with the true life portrayals.

The video presentation is available on YouTube or click on the new link on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department website: www.activeshooter.lasd.org

The web pages will enable visitors to view the video presentation and will also include links to resources outside the LASD website where more information can be found to enhance individual planning and preparation for home, school, or at work.

Cop Talk

For all things about cop culture-the work, the family, the days off.

The purpose of this page is to educate writers of all genres to be accurate in their portrayal of law enforcement professionals. This includes meter maids (I was a "lovely Rita" many years ago), dispatcher, patrol officers, detectives, and administrators.

I have many resources in my 35 year career in California law enforcement. I index and explain common errors that found in all media. Guests will also post about police professionalism today and tomorrow as well as historical articles about the way things used to be, "back in the day".

Examples of police media myths: missing persons cannot be reported by anyone but the family; missing persons reports can't be taken until the subject has been missing 24 hours; all cops eat donuts.

You get my drift.
