The Price of Success: Losing Officers In Active Shooter Incidents


The recent death of Ventura County Sheriffs Sergeant Ron Helus is a departure point for a discussion on how even a correct Active Shooter response may come at a cost. Accepting such losses is part of the bedrock values of law enforcement, a profession which must balance precariously between reflecting the society it serves and correctly representing older, bedrock values on which it is based. Implications for recruiting and training are discussed.
