DHS Offers New Virtual Training for Active Shooter Incidents

The military has used video game-style simulations for years to train their soldiers. Now, that technology will be available to train first responders on active shooter incidents. The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory joined forces to create a virtual training platform, available free to all response agencies nationwide. 

First pilot-tested in 2013, Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment (EDGE) allows responders from law enforcement, fire, EMS, dispatch, and unified command to assume discipline-based avatars and role-play complex response scenarios. Responders outfit their avatar, navigate the simulation and respond to threats based on their department’s policies. Each person determines their avatar’s actions, meaning the simulation plays out differently each time. EDGE was designed to allow people to take part in training simultaneously from different locations. This supports single- and multi-agency use which reduces training costs due to travel. It encourages different agencies or jurisdictions to train together by reducing barriers. Interagency exercises and drills develop a stronger and more effective response. 

The scenario currently available is of an active shooter at a hotel armed also with Molotov cocktails. A second scenario, a school shooting environment, is planned for release this fall. Agencies interested in obtaining a free copy of the EDGE hotel scenario or who have general EDGE inquiries may contact first.responder@hq.dhs.gov or visist the DHS Science and Technology web page at https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/enhanced-dynamic-geo-social-environment-edge

Kenilworth Police Department Earns ILEAS Agency Preparedness Award

ILEAS is honored to recognize The Kenilworth Police Department for their participation and completion of the Agency Preparedness Program. On 22 January 2018, Chief Dave Miller was presented the ILEAS Agency Preparedness Award at the Kenilworth Village Board Meeting by ILEAS Regional Planning Coordinator, Jim Hutton. Executive Director Jim Page and the entire ILEAS staff commend Chief Miller, Sergeant Padilla and the men and women of the Kenilworth Police Department for their efforts in successfully completing all components of the Program. 

ILEAS believes the Agency Preparedness Program sets a good foundation for the challenge of readiness. ILEAS hopes to improve and expand upon the Program annually by adding relevant objectives to help your agency stay current and maintain preparedness for years to come.

Since inception, ILEAS has remained committed to enhancing Law Enforcement mutual aid through its motto: “Strength through Cooperation”. We feel this program is another way agencies can prepare themselves before disaster strikes in order to come to aid of the citizens they serve.
