On-going, nationwide critical events, and locally in Middleton and Milwaukee WI, serve as a reminder for all citizens to be aware of their environment. With these events in mind, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office continues to take a proactive approach to active shooter situations and workplace violence.

The class requires a minimum of 90 minutes and is capped at 40 participants. To learn more, visit Stop the Bleed.
As of March 2020, over 19,000 people have participated in this Active Assailant Preparedness presentation. The goal of this training is to prepare you and your group for a situation in which an active shooter or assailant is at large within your building or area. We'll cover what to do, what not to do, and everything in between. This class requires a minimum of 2 hours.
- "THANK YOU SO MUCH for the excellent Active Shooter and Violence Preparedness workshop you conducted last night for our congregation! The program content, the important messages, the Visual presentation, the resource information, and the way in which you presented the material all combined for a ver powerful and potentially lifesaving experience for everyone who attended. I'm hopeful that your presentation will be the impetus for continued discussions (and actions!) by the Church Council and others to maintain and improve the safety and security of our facility. In addition, as we each develop our own "mental script" to deal with emergency situations, we can use this training in our daily lives and share what we learned with our families and friends."
