About Our Company

Our History

Threat Suppression employees have extensive backgrounds in public safety, military Special Operations, tactical medicine, business security, school security, church safety, and criminal intelligence. Collectively, our employees have more than 500 years of dedicated safety and security experience, and experience responding to more than half a million emergency calls. Many of our employees have received prestigious awards for their public safety work.


Threat Suppression has an international reputation as one of the premier safety and security companies in the world. Our business has grown rapidly, despite the fact that we do not market or advertise our services. More than 95% of our business comes from word-of-mouth recommendations from current or former clients. Nearly 50% of our business is repeat business from our clients. Our clients currently have training courses booked more than three years in advance.


Many federal agencies have recognized the expertise that Threat Suppression provides. The Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, and the United States District Attorney’s Office have contracted services at Threat Suppression. The Department of Homeland Security contracted with Threat Suppression to create multiple active shooter response training programs for thousands of first responders. Threat Suppression has received "sole source/no bid" contract awards from numerous government agencies because of our safety and security expertise. Threat Suppression has also provided training and consulting for multiple federal and NATO military Tier 1 counter-terrorism tactical teams.

Since 2012, Threat Suppression has provided training to more than 100,000 first responders, school officials, military personnel, government officials, hospital employees, and private businesses. Threat Suppression personnel have conducted training classes on five continents. We have provided training on active shooter response, response to fire-as-a-weapon events, critical infrastructure vulnerability, crisis communications, advanced incident command practices, hospital safety and security, house of worship safety and security, tactical medicine, large-scale civil unrest, and much more. We have also assisted more than 1,500 agencies and organizations with emergency operations planning and procedures.


Threat Suppression is a leader in public safety training. Our staff were among the first in the world to teach about an integrated police/fire/EMS response to active shooter events. Starting in 2007, our staff lectured throughout the world on this integrated active shooter approach. In 2011, our staff again was the first in the world to create a comprehensive training package on integrated police/fire/EMS response to large-scale civil unrest. In 2014, our staff again led the world, providing practical training for responders on integrated police/fire response to fire-as-a-weapon events.

We have provided training and consulting for more than 1,000 government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, school districts, universities, and more. Below are just some of our many clients (training for intelligence agencies and NATO Tier 1 tactical teams are not listed):
