The Dallas police chief who inspired a nation with his response to the killing of five of his officers is sharing his personal story and insights at Rave Summit 2019. Chief Brown believes that we have to band together to engage in the kind of dialogue that can lead to solutions. In place of complaining, we all have to take action—and one first great step is to tune in to what is being said.
In 2016, protesters marched in the streets of Dallas. As the peaceful event drew to a close, a sniper opened fire, targeting white cops and killing five of them. Into this charged situation stepped Dallas police chief David O. Brown, who, with a historic new tactical approach, quickly ended the gunman’s siege and calmed his community. Brown became a beacon of hope for the nation.
The thirty-three-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department is a former correspondent for ABC News. He authored the powerful memoir: Called to Rise: The Power of Community in a Nation Divided.
Guardian Defense offers Active Shooter Training for schools, colleges, businesses, places of worship, and law enforcement agencies across the country. Their programs transform the way employers and staff respond to an active threat, and are designed to empower staff to act when faced with an active shooter.
Steven S. Smith is the Co-Founder and President of Guardian Defense. Distressed by tragic events such as the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, Detective Smith created a program to give faculty and staff the confidence to cope with critical incidents on school grounds until professional first responders arrive.
The program has been implemented in hundreds of schools and workplaces since its creation in 2013. It has evolved to the Active Threat Response Program (ATRP). Smith’s program empowers staff of all sizes and industries with the knowledge and tactics necessary to protect and defend innocent lives and minimize mass casualties in the event of an active killer or other terror attack.
