Houston Executive Leader Meeting and Training

The next Houston Executive Leader Meeting will feature the training, Active Shooter – Prevention, Detection and Response, to help you learn more about preparing your charter system for an active shooter. 

This training will be presented by the Houston Police Department and is sponsored by the American International Group (AIG).  This training will be led by Officer Erik Termeulen, a seasoned law enforcement public servant and a U.S. Army veteran. He is a qualified trainer for Active Shooter response for the Houston Police Department and often conducts training to other police departments.

Officer Termeulen will walk the audience through past events including Columbine High School and Virginia Tech. And then he will discuss how faculty and students can be prepared and assist in preventing such incidents from occurring and how to respond should such incidents occur. He will also discuss prevention, detection and response best practices for school administrations to reinforce their duty of care standards.

• Faculty and Student Resources to prevent and detect issues.
• Preparation for alerts, evacuation and liaison with law enforcement.
