The Kim Turner, LLC active shooter courses are facilitated with both dispatch and field personnel to ensure the most comprehensive student learning outcomes.
The course is primarily designed for 9-1-1 dispatchers, call-takers and telecommunicators but is most effective when sworn field personnel also attend as students.
The primary outcomes include understanding the patrol and tactical response to an active shooter. Students will understand primary objectives of field personnel when encountering an active shooter. Concepts of single officer response, contact teams, rescue task force(s) and their primary roles and objectives are discussed as well as the role dispatch plays in enhancing a positive outcome to the response.
Students will also review current trends in active shooter events including large scale active shooter events and the tactical response options and the impact on dispatch operations. Tactical dispatching concepts that are easily adopted during these events including leveraging technology in the dispatch center.
At Kim Turner, LLC, our active shooter course is continuously updated and reviewed to provide students with relevant information they can apply on their next shift.

“Working for a small department with a single dispatcher and 2 officers on duty at a time, this course thought me how to prioritize efficiently in a Critical incident, also tons of different questions to ask my department that will definitely be helpful for further incidents.”
“I attended training both days and they are by far the absolute BEST training's I’ve attended in my 22-year career! From Kim to the rest of her training staff, they were AMAZING!!! I will be sure to recommend all future training's to be by Kim Turner, LLC. Thank you all for all of the amazing material and knowledge!”
On the morning of Tuesday, September 9, 2019, our dispatch Center was extremely busy with several high priority calls and staffing being at the minimum.
The day started with a female standing in the middle of traffic then becoming uncooperative with Officers. The female continued to be uncooperative and get physical with the officers which resulted in her being tarped. The day continued to be extremely busy with several calls coming in and officers going from call to call.
At 1218 hours, Public Safety Dispatcher Lizbeth Cardenas answered a 911 from a female citizen who was crying and very hard to understand, she was reporting that her son had a hammer at Corona Regional Medical Hospital 800 S Main St. Cardenas attempted to gather the necessary information to get the proper response going, but the female caller had disconnected. Cardenas attempted to call female back for further. Because of the limited information and not being able to get back in touch with the female RP it was unknown if Police and Fire needed to respond and was unknown exactly what was happening. Dispatchers Nancy Hernandez, Brianne Spickelmier and Nicoleta Kennedy assisted me while working as a team to make sure notifications were made to command staff, contacting Corona Regional Hospital to find out if they had additional information and to warn them of the subject that may be at their business armed with a hammer. Dispatch had to free up officers on other calls. When Officers finally arrived, it was determined that the son had slit his own neck with a knife in the parking lot of the hospital. The subject needed medical attention and was placed on a 5150 hold at the hospital. The call had the potential to end much worse.
There is no question that today our nation faces a nationwide shortage of 9-1-1 Dispatchers at all agencies. No matter how short a Center is, the dedication our team always shines through and everyone comes together to receive one common goal. The safety of all lives involved.
I want to commend Brianne, Nancy, Lizbeth and Nicoleta for working hard as a team, and for making sure the safety of our citizens, firemen, and officers were not at risk. You all have demonstrated the mission statement of the Corona Police Department which states:
“The mission of the Corona Police Department is to ensure the safety and security of the public through strong community partnership and excellence in policing.”
Three active shooter events occurred within six days.
While all of the facts are not in yet what is clear is the nexus of hate related to race, culture, and the overall mission of a high body count and domestic terror. There is not one community in the US that is immune. If you think that Sovereign Citizens or Hate Groups only exist, "over there," and not in your community because of it's affluence, it's in the city, or it is diverse you are not familiar with the truth about these groups.
As the FBI states, domestic violent extremists are the number one threat to public safety. Our Sovereign Citizen Extremist course also speaks to Hate Groups and understanding how they are intertwined with the Sovereign movement.
Enroll your 9-1-1 team in one of our upcoming courses. I am in 9-1-1 just like you and I know first hand the potential of a domestic violent extremist.

"The history of the “movement”. I’ve studied this on and off for a few years and never knew how some of these were tied together. Really emphasized that these are not 5150 crazy people but calculated & cunning in their interactions. This is one of the only courses like this offered in the dispatch world & you nailed it, Thanks! "
"Kim is the best instructor I’ve ever had in my 13 years!"
"The examples of the interactions between LE and sovereign citizens, the evolution and history of the movement, and the different documents and symbols they use."
Finally, a tee that says it all! The story of this tee is simple, there are not enough training dollars to around and often 9-1-1 dispatchers can't attend training because of staffing costs or actual training dollar costs. A portion of the proceeds for the sale of these shirts will go to provide training scholarships. It's legit, so much so, I set up a 501 (c ) (3) Foundation just for us in 9-1-1. Please, visit www.TheKTF.com and cruise around the website.
Police, Fire, EMS 9-1-1 dispatchers are first responders. It starts with us and ends with us. Wear your tee with pride. The tees are available in crew, v-neck and extended sizes.

"El centro Police Department was fortunate enough to receive two scholarships from Kim Turner to attend this course. These scholarships allowed the dispatchers to attend training they would not otherwise have had the opportunity to experience. We are grateful to KT who continually looks for ways to improve our industry. So fellow dispatchers buy those fantastic t-shirts and provide her the means to give out more scholarships."
