In the realm of law enforcement and public safety, preparation for active shooter scenarios is not just a responsibility—it’s a necessity.
The International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI) recognizes this need and is dedicated to providing top-tier training for such critical situations.
A highlight of the IALEFI Annual Training Conference (ATC) 2024 is the Active Shooter Training class led by Ed Monk, a distinguished expert in the field.
Ed Monk: A Trainer Par Excellence
Ed Monk brings to the table a wealth of experience and specialized knowledge. As a seasoned police officer, retired Army officer, and former schoolteacher with over 16 years of focus on active shooter threats, his background is as diverse as it is impressive. His approach to training is rooted in real-world applicability, drawing from his extensive research and on-the-ground experience.
Comprehensive Active Shooter Training
The Active Shooter Training at IALEFI’s ATC 2024 is meticulously designed to equip law enforcement professionals with the skills and knowledge required to effectively respond to these high-stakes situations.
The course includes:
- Critical Law Enforcement Lessons-Learned from Active Shooter Attacks: This session, scheduled for Monday, September 16th, is not merely a theoretical exposition. Instead, it delves into the psychological profile of an active shooter, dissecting real-life attack scenarios to extract vital lessons. The focus is on understanding what works, what doesn’t, and how past events can inform future responses.
- Active Shooter Basic Skills Class: On Tuesday, September 17th, attendees will transition from theory to practice. This live-fire training emphasizes the development of crucial shooting skills, focusing on achieving accuracy under pressure. The drills and discussions are designed to refine the participants’ ability to deliver solid, center hits with a handgun, simulating the dynamics of an actual active shooter event.
Why This Training Is Crucial
Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve rapidly. Standard response protocols may not suffice when faced with such volatile scenarios. Ed Monk’s training sessions at the ATC address this gap by:
- Enhancing situational awareness and mental preparedness.
- Developing tactical shooting skills tailored for active shooter scenarios.
- Fostering a mindset geared towards rapid decision-making and effective action under pressure.
