Drug Identification & Active Shooter
Presented by Ken Poteet, The Awareness Group
Training: four credit hours
When: December 12, 2019 from 8 am to 12 noon
Drug Identification is designed to train the attendee in the recognition of drugs commonly manufactured, sold, possessed, and used in violation of federal and state laws. Topics include appearance of drugs and symptoms of abuse of the most commonly abused drugs from the four controlled substance groups of depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, and narcotics.
Coming in contact with someone who chooses to abuse drugs can be dangerous due to the criminal nature of the activity and to the altered state of influence the user might be under during the time of contact. Being better aware of your surroundings can be very beneficial when you are potentially in a drug user’s residence.
An Active Shooter is defined as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a con?ned and populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms with no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Most incidents occur at locations in which the killers find little impediment in pressing their attack. Locations are generally described as soft targets, that is, they carry limited security measures to protect members of the public.
This class provides instruction to individuals who may be caught in an active shooter situation. Covered topics will include: History and profile of an active shooter, responding to an active shooter, responding to law enforcement on the scene and recognizing potential workplace violence. Increased random violence in public locations is demanding our attention like never before. Losses can be mitigated through awareness and preparation.
This course is $50/person for YPMA members and their staff, for non-members the cost is $60/person.
