A security guard, security officer, or protective agent is a person who is paid to protect property, assets, or people. They are usually privately and mostly comprised with civilian personnel. Security officers are generally uniformed and act to protect property by maintaining a high-visibility presence to deter illegal and inappropriate actions, observing (either directly, through patrols, or by watching alarm systems or video cameras) for signs of crime, fire or disorder; then taking action and reporting any incidents to their client and emergency services as appropriate.

15 Jimmy Autry State Prison Correction Officers in Pelham Georgia Arrested in Massive Corruption

PELHAM, Ga. Jan 23 2016– More than 50 people have been charged in connection with a massive corruption investigation into one Georgia state prison.

PELHAM, Ga. Jan 23 2016-– More than 50 people have been charged in connection with a massive corruption investigation into one Georgia state prison.

Officials said on Thursday that numerous Georgia Department of Corrections employees, inmates and even people from outside the prison system were federally charged with a slew of charges such as conspiring to commit wire fraud, conspiring to commit money laundering and accepting bribes to smuggle contraband into Jimmy Autry State Prison in Pelham, Ga.

Autry State Prison houses about 1,700 of the state’s estimated 50,000 inmates.

U.S. Attorney John A. Horn’s office said that the alleged activity was committed from inside the prisons and initiated by inmates.

“The indictments allege that inmates managed and directed a number of elaborate fraud schemes that victimized citizens from across the country from within the Georgia prison system using contraband cell phones,” said U.S. Attorney John A. Horn.

Horn said that since September 2015, 75 people had been charged with criminal conduct that began from within the prison system. It is illegal to give an inmate a cell phone and illegal for the inmate to possess one.

“The unfortunate common denominator to this criminal conduct is the pervasive availability of contraband cell phones, which allows too many prison inmates to continue victimizing our communities while serving their sentences,” Horn said.

In this case, the cell phones were used to access websites that would identify potential fraud victims. They then used the phones to impersonate officers in various scams.

In these, they told their victims that they had failed to appear for jury duty and that warrants had been issued for the victims arrest unless they paid a fine.

In a lengthy process involving cash cards, co-conspirators outside the prison would transfer money from card to card with the goal of eventually putting it back in the hands of the inmates.

But outside connections weren’t the only people who allegedly participated in this process, officials said. Of the 51 charged, 15 were current or former corrections officers at Autry State Prison.

Security Guard Training Active Shooter Situations How to Respond

Active Shooter How to respond

Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law
enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation

PROFILE OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER

An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.

Good practices for coping with an active shooter situation • Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers • Take note of the two nearest exits in any facility you visit • If you are in an office, stay there and secure the door • If you are in a hallway, get into a room and secure the door • As a last resort, attempt to take the active shooter down. When the shooter is at close range and you cannot flee, your chance of survival is much greater if you try to incapacitate him/her. CALL 911 WHEN IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!

HOW TO RESPOND WHEN AN ACTIVE SHOOTER IS IN YOUR VICINITY

Quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life. Remember that customers and clients are likely to follow the lead of employees and managers during an active shooter situation.

1. Evacuate If there is an accessible escape path, attempt to evacuate the premises.

Be sure to: • Have an escape route and plan in mind • Evacuate regardless of whether others agree to follow • Leave your belongings behind • Help others escape, if possible • Prevent individuals from entering an area where the active shooter may be • Keep your hands visible • Follow the instructions of any police officers • Do not attempt to move wounded people • Call 911 when you are safe

2. Hide out If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you.

Your hiding place should: • Be out of the active shooter’s view • Provide protection if shots are fired in your direction (i.e., an office with a closed and locked door) • Not trap you or restrict your options for movement

To prevent an active shooter from entering your hiding place: • Lock the door • Blockade the door with heavy furniture

If the active shooter is nearby: • Lock the door • Silence your cell phone and/or pager • Turn off any source of noise (i.e., radios, televisions) • Hide behind large items (i.e., cabinets, desks) • Remain quiet

If evacuation and hiding out are not possible: • Remain calm • Dial 911, if possible, to alert police to the active shooter’s location • If you cannot speak, leave the line open and allow the dispatcher to listen

3. Take action against the active shooter As a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to disrupt and/or incapacitate the active shooter by: • Acting as aggressively as possible against him/her • Throwing items and improvising weapons • Yelling • Committing to your actions

HOW TO RESPOND WHEN LAW ENFORCEMENT ARRIVES

Law enforcement’s purpose is to stop the active shooter as soon as possible. Officers will proceed directly to the area in which the last shots were heard.

Officers usually arrive in teams of four (4) • Officers may wear regular patrol uniforms or external bulletproof vests, Kevlar helmets, and other tactical equipment • Officers may be armed with rifles, shotguns, handguns • Officers may use pepper spray or tear gas to control the situation • Officers may shout commands, and may push individuals to the ground for their safety

How to react when law enforcement arrives: • Remain calm, and follow officers’ instructions • Put down any items in your hands (i.e., bags, jackets) • Immediately raise hands and spread fingers • Keep hands visible at all times • Avoid making quick movements toward officers such as holding on to them for safety • Avoid pointing, screaming and/or yelling • Do not stop to ask officers for help or direction when evacuating, just proceed in the direction from which officers are entering the premises

Information to provide to law enforcement or 911 operator: • Location of the active shooter • Number of shooters, if more than one • Physical description of shooter/s • Number and type of weapons held by the shooter/s • Number of potential victims at the location

The first officers to arrive to the scene will not stop to help injured persons. Expect rescue teams comprised of additional officers and emergency medical personnel to follow the initial officers. These rescue teams will treat and remove any injured persons. They may also call upon able-bodied individuals to assist in removing the wounded from the premises.

Once you have reached a safe location or an assembly point, you will likely be held in that area by law enforcement until the situation is under control, and all witnesses have been identified and questioned. Do not leave until law enforcement authorities have instructed you to do so.

TRAINING YOUR STAFF FOR AN ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION

To best prepare your staff for an active shooter situation, create an Emergency Action Plan (EAP), and conduct training exercises. Together, the EAP and training exercises will prepare your staff to effectively respond and help minimize loss of life.

Components of an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)

Create the EAP with input from several stakeholders including your human resources department, your training department (if one exists), facility owners / operators, your property manager, and local law enforcement and/or emergency responders. An effective EAP includes:

• A preferred method for reporting fires and other emergencies • An evacuation policy and procedure • Emergency escape procedures and route assignments (i.e., floor plans, safe areas) • Contact information for, and responsibilities of individuals to be contacted under the EAP • Information concerning local area hospitals (i.e., name, telephone number, and distance from your location) • An emergency notification system to alert various parties of an emergency including: – Individuals at remote locations within premises – Local law enforcement – Local area hospitals

Components of Training Exercises – The most effective way to train your staff to respond to an active shooter situation is to conduct mock active shooter training exercises. Local law enforcement is an excellent resource in designing training exercises. • Recognizing the sound of gunshots • Reacting quickly when gunshots are heard and/or when a shooting is witnessed: – Evacuating the area – Hiding out – Acting against the shooter as a last resort • Calling 911 • Reacting when law enforcement arrives • Adopting the survival mind set during times of crisis.

Additional Ways to Prepare For and Prevent an Active Shooter Situation • Preparedness – Ensure that your facility has at least two evacuation routes – Post evacuation routes in conspicuous locations throughout your facility – Include local law enforcement and first responders during training exercises – Encourage law enforcement, emergency responders, SWAT teams, K-9 teams, and bomb squads to train for an active shooter scenario at your location.

• Prevention – Foster a respectful workplace – Be aware of indications of workplace violence and take remedial actions accordingly.

PREPARING FOR AND MANAGING AN ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION

Your human resources department and facility managers should engage in planning for emergency situations, including an active shooter scenario. Planning for emergency situations will help to mitigate the likelihood of an incident by establishing the mechanisms described below.

Human Resources’ Responsibilities

• Conduct effective employee screening and background checks • Create a system for reporting signs of potentially violent behavior • Make counseling services available to employees • Develop an EAP which includes policies and procedures for dealing with an active shooter situation, as well as after action planning

Facility Manager Responsibilities

• Institute access controls (i.e., keys, security system pass codes) • Distribute critical items to appropriate managers / employees, including: – Floor plans – Keys – Facility personnel lists and telephone numbers • Coordinate with the facility’s security department to ensure the physical security of the location • Assemble crisis kits containing: – radios – floor plans – staff roster, and staff emergency contact numbers – first aid kits – flashlights • Place removable floor plans near entrances and exits for emergency responders • Activate the emergency notification system when an emergency situation occurs.

Reactions of Managers During an Active Shooter Situation

Employees and customers are likely to follow the lead of managers during an emergency situation. During an emergency, managers should be familiar with their EAP, and be prepared to:

• Take immediate action • Remain calm • Lock and barricade doors • Evacuate staff and customers via a preplanned evacuation route to a safe area

RECOGNIZING POTENTIAL WORKPLACE VIOLENCE

An active shooter in your workplace may be a current or former employee, or an acquaintance of a current or former employee. Intuitive managers and coworkers may notice characteristics of potentially violent behavior in an employee. Alert your Human Resources Department if you believe an employee or coworker exhibits potentially violent behavior.

Indicators of Potential Violence by an Employee

Employees typically do not just “snap,” but display indicators of potentially violent behavior over time. If these behaviors are recognized, they can often be managed and treated. Potentially violent behaviors by an employee may include one or more of the following (this list of behaviors is not comprehensive, nor is it intended as a mechanism for diagnosing violent tendencies):

• Increased use of alcohol and/or illegal drugs • Unexplained increase in absenteeism; vague physical complaints • Noticeable decrease in attention to appearance and hygiene • Depression / withdrawal • Resistance and overreaction to changes in policy and procedures • Repeated violations of company policies • Increased severe mood swings • Noticeably unstable, emotional responses • Explosive outbursts of anger or rage without provocation • Suicidal; comments about “putting things in order” • Behavior which is suspect of paranoia, (“everybody is against me”) • Increasingly talks of problems at home • Escalation of domestic problems into the workplace; talk of severe financial problems • Talk of previous incidents of violence • Empathy with individuals committing violence • Increase in unsolicited comments about firearms, other dangerous weapons and violent crimes.

MANAGING THE CONSEQUENCES OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION

After the active shooter has been incapacitated and is no longer a threat, human resources and/or management should engage in post-event assessments and activities, including: • An accounting of all individuals at a designated assembly point to determine who, if anyone, is missing and potentially injured • Determining a method for notifying families of individuals affected by the active shooter, including notification of any casualties • Assessing the psychological state of individuals at the scene, and referring them to health care specialists accordingly • Identifying and filling any critical personnel or operational gaps left in the organization as a result of the active shooter.

LESSONS LEARNED

To facilitate effective planning for future emergencies, it is important to analyze the recent active shooter situation and create an after action report. The analysis and reporting contained in this report is useful for:

• Serving as documentation for response activities • Identifying successes and failures that occurred during the event • Providing an analysis of the effectiveness of the existing EAP • Describing and defining a plan for making improvements to the EAP
