F E AT U R E The Fatal in Your Active Shooter Response and How to Fix Them BY BO MITCHELL 18 GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONS | SPRING/SUMMER 2017 J ennifer is your best employee. She has earned 10 outstanding annual performance reviews. Over the years, we've learned that Jennifer has two kids and she's married to Joe. We've met Joe at a couple of company social events. Really, we know little about Jennifer's family life. Turns out, Joe is a monster. He beats Jennifer. He abuses the children. Jennifer has sued for divorce. She's going through an ugly custody battle. Jennifer has secured a protection order against Joe at home and your workplace. But we know nothing of these troubles because Jennifer doesn't bring family drama to work. This morning, Joe shows up at your reception carrying a huge bouquet of flowers. Everyone thinks, "How sweet." Knowing nothing of their troubles at home, Joe gets immediate access to your workplace. He goes down the hall, finds Jennifer, drops the flowers, produces a pistol and shoots Jennifer in the head.
