MESSAGE FROM CHUCK CHADWICK

“Initial Responder"™ Tactics

An Introduction by Chuck Chadwick

 
Initial – Definition:  in·i·tial  [ih-nish-uhl]  - adjective  - of, pertaining to, or occurring at the beginning; first: the initial step in a process. Origin: 1520–30;  < Latin initiālis,  equivalent to initi ( um ) beginning ( init-,  noun derivative of inīre  to enter, begin; in- in-2  + īre  to go; cf. comes) + -ium -ium) + -alis -al1
 
First Responder - Definition: We are all familiar with the term/expression “First Responder”. The term brings forth the image of our valiant Emergency Response Teams from the Police/Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue and Medical from our Municipal, State and Federal Governments.
___________________________________
Reference Source Data:
  1. Those of us that keep tabs of crimes in our churches are familiar with Carl Chinn (CarlChinn.com) and his invaluable work of tracking Deadly Force Incidents in the faith based area.
  2. In recent publications an analysis of All U.S Active Shooter Events (ASE) between 2001-2010 was done.
Both information sources indicate that law enforcement is able to respond to and active shooter event less that 49% of the time before the event is ended in the secular cases and even less in faith based events.
 
There is an expression “Left of Bang” from Van Horne and Riley’s 2014 book “Left of Bang” which describing preincident indicators before the “Bang”/ deadly force incident.
 
We are now defining “Initial Responder"™ as new term defining the persons that are “At The Bang"™ in a literal sense of meaning.  When the mad man pulls out the gun, “You Are There”.
 
The search for “Secret Sauce” -
 I have spent hundreds of hours researching the various SWAT tactics, Anti-Active shooter tactics, ALERRT protocols, SRT team tactics from Law Enforcement and the Military, even training and strategy sessions with an active member of the Navy SEALS.  I have interviewed numerous SWAT team members of different departments to understand the Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) they employ.
 
The tactics are much the same no matter the department or agency. But what I did notice is that while there were great tactics for clearing a building and hunting down a person you can’t readily find by the sound of the gun shots, there was very little, if anything, about tactics for actually being there “At The Bang™”.
 
Our journey has lead us to retrace how we have come to the training methods we currently deploy to most Security, Law Enforcement and Military today. Reading book as far back as the eighteen hundreds up to very recent publications has given us a great insight into the various methods and techniques.
 
It is my belief that our search for applicable tactics for the “Initial Responder"™ should point to the further study and adaptation of Close Quarters Combat tactics and techniques and not exactly the Active Shooter response TTPs of a SWAT team.
 
To that end we are developing a program specifically design to impart these “initial Responder"™ TTPs to help every church security team be more prepared.
 

The preliminary outline of this new “Initial Responder"™ program will be released at the 10th Annual National Church Security Conference in Colorado Springs, CO, August 8-9, 2014.

Hope to see you there.

Highest Regards and God Bless,

Chuck Chadwick

THINK ABOUT IT....

On Sunday following a week of …

 

As the Friday news broke in my home county, it was a very concerned male voice. He declared “military cuts at Fort Carson could have a devastating (with a very pronounced emphasis on the word, devastating) effect on the Colorado Springs community.” I imagined a cloud of poverty dust exploding from the base spreading northward all over our city leaving nothing but ragged clothed little kids with sad eyes and tear stains on dusty faces.
 
At the end of the news, a talk show host convinced me that Obama and the democrats have taken all my freedoms with little hope to get any of them back.
