My concealed weapons demonstrations have raised awareness about the problem of weapons in our schools for the past 15 years. I have starred in, directed or produced more than one hundred school safety training videos and my work has won two Telly Awards and a W3 Award for web content. The FBI, TSA, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Israeli National Police, British Intelligence agencies and thousands of law enforcement agencies and school systems in several dozen countries have used my videos.
What have you written, co-written, or published within your profession?
I have authored and co-authored numerous articles for trade magazines and journals as well as five books on school safety. I recently released my 6th book in print, Staying Alive: How to Act Fast and Survive Deadly Encounters. His 3rd book, Innocent Targets: When Terrorism Comes to School is the foremost text on school terrorism and is in use by countless organizations including FEMA and Department of Homeland Security personnel in all 50 states. I am a frequent guest author and presenter at national conferences and school safety training academies, and was recently selected as part of a team to author course content for the Department of Homeland Security as part of the White House 2013 school safety initiative.
