Training Team

Active Shooter Prevention Expert and Policy Advisor Chris Grollnek continues his pursuit for National Security through innovative Strategic Partnerships for the rest of the nation. In the past year, Chris made a commitment to change the ideals of safety conversations from family dinner tables to professional conferences.

We as a Nation must be able to tap into the talent pool of true experts in their own right for advice without worrying about learning to defend ourselves. Instead, this coalition will assist in everyday business and family members to help make better decisions while out in public environments and how best to remain safe. We will achieve this through blogs, radio interviews, news media and video messaging. Visitors – I am proud to introduce the “Best of the Best” from each specialized field found inside the broad security industry.

The strategic partnerships found below could feature in Homeland Security Periodicals as the “who’s who” of National Security and beyond. Many claim “expert” in their titles; this coalition of actual experts from each of their respective fields have spent their entire lives defending and creating areas for others to remain safe and venues to make that mission possible. Welcome all and thank you for the support going forward.
