City of Mesa PD is presenting; Situational Awareness and Active Violence training. This 4 hour course will primarily focus on “Situational Awareness”. The instructor will define awareness for the purpose of surviving a violent encounter and will show you how we can use awareness to help keep us safe.
We will discuss the two big enemies of awareness and how to overcome them. We will also learn how to recognize dangerous and predatory behavior, review the history of active shooter events in the US and look at current data and trends.
Examine the importance of plans, protocols and systems in response to active violence and briefly touch on how to implement them. We need to consider plans for response to violent attacks both individually and corporately.
Introduction to the FBI / Homeland Security protocol for civilian response to active shooter events; “Run, Hide, Fight.” This class is not intended to teach someone how to fight, but rather to have the proper mindset for survival.
Officer Jeff Jacobs is currently a police officer with over 26 years of experience.
FBI Task force for 3 years. Working Violent Street Gangs and Counter Terrorism.
Certified instructor for “Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events”.
Certified instructor for the NRA’s “Refuse to be a Victim” program.
Jeff developed this program over 7 years ago to provide survival training for citizens who may find themselves in violent encounters. I want to show people how they can have some control over the safety and security of their own lives as well as their families, friends and co-workers.
