Active Shooter Workshop

Several chapter members attended a Active Shooter workshop sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security at Blaisdell Center on Monday, June 26, 2017.  This extremely informative workshop was brought to Honolulu by our local DHS Protective Security Advisor James Cruz.  The all day workshop provided several modules on developing, planning and implementing an Active Shooter program for your company or agency.  Additional information can be obtained by visiting the DHS website at http://dhs.gov and entering Active Shooter Workshop into the search box.

James is also available to answers questions and provide assistance to companies regarding DHS products and services that may be available to your organization.  James is a great resource and I urge all members to utilize his skills.
