We have been involved in training with Security Solutions International™ (SSI™) for some time. When the opportunity presented itself to bring their active shooter program to our area we were extremely excited. SSI™ has always provided instructors who are professional operators, knowledgeable in their field, as well as very realistic scenario based training. This program was no different. The reality based scenarios designed by the staff clearly had a positive impact on the students. Joe Witty (lead instructor) is clearly a guy who has been down range and knows the threat we all are facing. Everyday we see different active shooter situations from foreign and domestic terrorist to the local school shootings. This program prepares the student mentally and physically to analyze the situation, develop a plan and address the threat posed by the shooter. Joe’s insight into the emerging tactics in active shooter is invaluable and something every officer working the street or working a desk should know. You never know when YOU will be in the situation to save the lives of others.

Case Study

The 2008 Mumbai attacks killing 164 people and wounding at least 308:

The 2008 Mumbai attacks (often referred to as November 26 or 26/11) were more than 10 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai, India's largest city, by Islamist attackers[5][6] who invaded from Pakistani seawaters.[7] The attackers received reconnaissance assistance before the attacks, and when later captured stated that the attacks were conducted with the support of Pakistan's secret service, the ISI.[8][9] The attacks, which drew widespread global condemnation, began on Wednesday, 26 November 2008, and lasted until Saturday, 29 November, killing 164 people and wounding at least 308.[2][10]

Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident,[11] the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower,[11] Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital (a women and children's hospital),[11] the Nariman House Jewish community centre,[12] the Metro Cinema,[13] and a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College.[11] There was also an explosion at Mazagaon, in Mumbai's port area, and in a taxi at Vile Parle.[14] By the early morning of 28 November, all sites except for the Taj hotel had been secured by Mumbai Police and security forces. An action by India's National Security Guards (NSG) on 29 November (the action is officially named Operation Black Tornado) resulted in the death of the last remaining attackers at the Taj hotel, ending all fighting in the attacks.[15]

Ajmal Kasab,[16] the only attacker who was captured alive, disclosed that the attackers were members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based militant organization, considered a terrorist organization by India, Pakistan, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the United Nations,[17] among others.[18] The Indian government said that the attackers came from Pakistan, and their controllers were in Pakistan.[19] On 7 January 2009,[20] Pakistan's Information Minister Sherry Rehman officially accepted Ajmal Kasab's nationality as Pakistani.[21] On 12 February 2009, Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik asserted that parts of the attack had been planned in Pakistan.[22] A trial court on 6 May 2010 sentenced Ajmal Kasab to death on five counts.

Pakistan's ISI is alleged to have been involved in the attacks, according to WikiLeaks.
