Movie theaters are attractive because for the bad guy it’s like shooting fish in a barrel,” says David Katz. Katz is the Director of Global Security Group, a New York-based security firm that consults with movie theaters. “Under the best circumstances, you still can’t empty the theater quickly. In an emergency, everyone is pushing toward the same door, thousands and thousands of pounds pushing them along in a very confined space,” Katz continued. 

The public needs to be aware of potential mass shootings that can take place in movie theaters. Particularly, when the release of Warner Bros. movie Joker begins playing on October 4th, 2019. From previous shootings, warnings, and incel activity, we want you to stay safe.

Active Shooter Training for Businesses

Jun 12, 2019 8:00:00 AM / by Active Threat Solutions by Defense in Depth posted in crisis management, active shooter incidents, workplace violence incident


According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), there have been 251 active shooter events in the United States between 2000 and April 27, 2018. The bulk of these events have taken place in open areas, educational spaces and the commerce industry. Even as the number of active shooter events continues to rise, many businesses have failed to take immediate action in educating their employees on what to do in this type of event.

At Active Threat Solutions by Defense in Depth, we believe that it is not enough to increase security. It is not enough to provide run of the mill active shooter training from an individual who is not an expert in the security space. Business owners and decision makers within the business have a duty to provide more than adequate training so that their employees can take a stand and know what to do in the event of an active threat situation.

If you are interested in how you can protect your employees, continue reading to learn more about active shooter training provided by an expert, as well as the benefits of receiving this training.
