Over the past several years, law enforcement and first responders across the United States have seen an alarming increase in the availability of dangerous synthetic opioids in the communities we serve. A large percentage of these synthetic opioids are derivatives of the synthetic drug "fentanyl." Fentanyl is listed as a Schedule II prescription drug that mimics the effects of morphine in the human body, but at a much higher potency. In addition to its high potency, fentanyl is readily available and is often used as an "additive" to other controlled substances, leading to an alarming increase of overdose deaths and accidental exposures.

The course provides an in-depth study of the active killer tragedies in society, both past and most recent. Through the course, participants will not only gain a stronger understanding of the threat, but more importantly, how to better understand how an individual can make the ultimate decision to commit such acts of violence. The latter half of the course will provide the participant a first-hand account of the actions of both the active killer, and the responses from Captain Howell and the responding on-duty officers. Video, 911 calls for police, and a discussion of lessons learned close out the seminar.
