    Active Shooter Training brought to us by Officer Scott Griffith of Lee County Sheriff's Office.  

    Does your workplace have an active shooter policy? Do you offer workplace training? Active shooter training has taken roots in our schools, places of worship and now needed more than ever in our workplaces. HR staff manage conflict every day. What are the best steps you can take to prepare for the worst rather than hope for the best?

    Read this informative article on SHRM's website, but don't stop there. Come join us for this critical training.

    About Our Speaker

    Scott Griffith, Lee County Staff Officer

    After being released from the Ottawa Roughriders in the Canadian Football league, Scott
    started his law enforcement career at a small police department outside of Cleveland, Ohio in
    1979. While working there he continued to train for football and had multiple tryouts in the NFL
    – the last one being with the Miami Dolphins in 1983. Deciding to make Florida his new home,
    he was hired by the Ft. Myers Police Department in Ft. Myers, Florida in 1984. Working his way
    up through the ranks, Scott served in a variety of command leadership positions within Law
    Enforcement including SWAT, Special Operations, Investigations, Training and Internal Affairs
    before retiring as a Bureau Commander after 30 years of service. Being the son of a retired
    Chief and a second-generation law enforcement officer, his passion for his noble profession
    continued and is now a Staff Officer with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, responsible for
    teaching/training civilian and sworn personnel on Active Shooter Response.

    Scott is also a recognized motivational speaker and throughout his career has had the
    opportunity to teach, train, and coach well over 30,000 people in both the public and private
    sectors throughout the United States. Recognized as a subject matter expert in leadership,
    tactical fitness, and use of force issues – Scott’s HardLine Leadership style and approach to his
    presentations has garnered a great deal of attention and positive feedback.

    Scott has a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management, is an FBI National Academy
    graduate and a senior Executive Leadership Instructor for the Florida Department of Law
    Enforcement. Scott is also a senior instructor trainer in leadership, defensive tactics, and

    About the Topic

    Run-Hide-Fight Active Shooter Preparedness Tranining

    If you unexpectedly found yourself in the chaos of an active shooter or mass casualty
    event, would you know what to do to survive?
     Can you safely escape?
     Is there a good place to hide?
     Will you attack the shooter?
    This seminar will address those issues and much more. From the start, participants will
    learn how to prepare before an incident takes place and learn the applications/options
    of Run – Hide – Fight along with the “when, where & how” they can be realistically
    applied. We then go beyond the options/concepts and explain what will happen to you
    both mentally and physically in these types of situations and how to use them to your
    advantage. And finally, no program would be complete without addressing last resort
    options when it comes to defending yourself and others. Knowing how to Respond,
    Assess, Protect; Identify Defenses during an active assailant assault could be the
    difference in your survival.
