According to the FBI, active shooter incidents occur at places of businesses and retail stores – including shopping malls – more than at any other location. Typically, they are sites that are patrolled and protected by private security officers. Prompt and appropriate action by private security officers, in coordination with responding law-enforcement officers, can save lives.

The Mall Active Shooter Tabletop Exercise Toolkit provides all of the materials and information necessary to easily plan and host an exercise. The toolkit was created with the help of private security and law enforcement partners who had lacked opportunities to coordinate their efforts – despite training separately for years.

A joint exercise can be a daunting and costly undertaking. This exercise toolkit is designed to provide a simple step-by-step guide, as well as other ready-made resources, to make planning and conducting an exercise straightforward and virtually cost free.

Exercise toolkit materials include:

    • PowerPoint Presentation for the exercise
    • Facilitator’s Guide
    • Participant Situation Manual
    • Planning Timeline
    • Meeting & Support Documents

To register and obtain immediate access to the Mall Active Shooter Tabletop Exercise Toolkit, you will be prompted to provide: your name, your agency/business, e-mail address and location. All of the materials in the toolkit to plan and facilitate a mall shooter scenario tabletop exercise are available to download, free.

NOTE:  This exercise toolkit can be easily adapted to fit other settings and venues.
