Join us for this presentation by the Omaha Police Department and Officer Devin Crinklaw.
Crinklaw is a 16-year veteran of the Omaha Police Department and SWAT team member.
Officer Crinklaw's past presentations have intentionally avoided discussing guns.
Instead, he focused on how people can increase their chances of survival when suddenly facing an “active killer.” Police are moving away from the term “active shooter” and replacing it with active threat or active killer, he said.
That’s because attackers are shifting tactics from guns to include trucks, knives and pressure-cooker bombs, he said.
People must be aware, ready, willing and prepared to take action. They should run, hide or fight, he said.
