Active Shooter


Recent tragic events have demonstrated that violent acts and active shooter incidents can occur anywhere. Sadly, most civilian organizations do not have any training, equipment, or plans in place.

Take a proactive step toward greater safety for your organization. OpTempo's instructors are certified Active Shooter instructors who provide the most up to date response tactics and procedures to Police and civilian organizations.
