Responding to 'active shooter' incidents in Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An ‘active shooter’ incident is a term used to describe a situation in which a shooting is in progress and an aspect of the crime may affect the protocols used in responding to and reacting at the scene of the incident. Unlike a defined crime, such as a murder or mass killing, the‘active’ aspect inherently implies that both law enforcement personnel and citizens have the potential to affect the outcome of the event based upon their responses (Blair & Schweit, 2014).
