CARLSBAD, Calif., Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino has left many Americans feeling uncertain about our ability to prevent the next attack. We cannot exclusively rely on others to keep us safe, and we cannot afford the tax burden of a police officer on every corner. That does not make us incapable of preventing the next act of violence. The only sustainable solution to the threats we face as a society are capable, confident and engaged private citizens.
Spend the day working with former members of the U. S. government's intelligence and military special operations units learning the processes, techniques, and tips that professionals use to come home safe to their families from some of the toughest neighborhoods on earth.
"Over the course of my lifetime, I've seen a cultural shift in our society towards a nearly institutionalized dependence on dedicated government provided security services. The eventuality of this shift is a police state that none of us want. Every American is capable of productively contributing to the safety and security of his or her community. We can reduce our dependence on professional security services, and in the process reduce the violence and crime in our society. It starts with us. We can make our communities safer by taking personal responsibility for our safety and security."
~ Patrick Henry, CEO of Aegis Academy
