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 that train Police and other agencies the most up to date response tactics and procedures. We have the experience and expertise to help you with your safety goals.



"I met with Matt and Chris for just a short time and knew they were experienced and
knowledgeable in their field. They were willing to accommodate us and adjust their
class based on our time and content needs. The class was informative, interactive
and well worth our time. I plan on using OpTempo for future training."

-Dan Smith – 3Crosses Church Security. Castro Valley, CA


"Having extensive military training and education, I have never seen active shooter training conducted in the manner that OPTEMPO does it. The team provided excellent instruction with case studies, suggestions on tactics that work and most of all, scenario-based practical exercises with role-players. I can positively say that OPTEMPO has given my team the necessary muscle memory to overcome any potential threat."

-SFC Justin Flood - First Sergeant, 95th WMD-CST


"We were thoroughly impressed with OpTempo's professionalism and highly recommend their services. I noticed during your presentation that was the first time I observed the entire staff paying close attention and not checking their phones or having side conversations. Thank you for coming on such short notice and hope to have you back for more training."

-Joseph Gonzalez- Sonoma County Indian Health Project
