Equipment to take to an active-shooter event

In this video tactical tip, Don Alwes talks about the necessity to be prepared for an active shooter incident, calling it a “come as you are, and come right now” type of event. The aggression with which you respond will have a significant impact on an officer’s success in ending such an event with a minimal loss of innocent lives. Alwes reminds us that more important than any equipment you bring to the fight is what you have in your head and in your heart — the equipment is just what fits in your hand.
