Active shooter events and workplace violence have become all too commonplace across this nation.  Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado and Parkland, Florida are events we all remember that ended with numerous innocent people murdered or injured.

The Smyrna Police Department has trained our officers to respond and manage these types of events and we are prepared to react.  However, these events are random and there is no way to predict when or where it may occur.  Have you ever thought what you would do if you were confronted with one of these events occurring at your workplace?  How would you react?  What could you do to increase your chances of survival?
The Smyrna Police Department has created an Active Shooter Training program for assisting organizations wishing to prepare themselves and their employees in the event of an armed aggressor. It is designed to assist businesses, schools, churches and any other organization in determining effective options for defending against potential threats and minimizing risk to their employees and operations.

If you are interested in learning more about the program or wish to set up a meeting and risk assessment, please contact  Sgt. Gary Schoon (615) 459-9742, ext. 7431 or by e-mail.

We look forward to working with you.
