Active Shooter

The purpose of this policy is to provide protocols for assessing the threat and performing rapid intervention tactics to limit serious injury or loss of life during active shooter situations. While the term “active shooter” is used throughout, this policy applies to all situations where there is an active, ongoing deadly threat, to include those from firearms, explosives, knives, and so forth.

It is the policy of this department in situations where ongoing deadly force is reasonably likely to be employed by a suspect—and delay in taking police action could result in injury or death—that rapid intervention of officers at the scene is authorized when such actions are deemed reasonable to prevent further injuries or loss of life.
