TV & Newspaper Coverage of TAC*ONE Consulting
Tac*One Consulting is often covered in the local Denver, CO media and also in newspapers and tv news reports throughout the US. Here is a sampling of some of the coverage of us and our active shooter, school faculty and civilian training.
TAC*ONE Consulting has recently added an Active Shooter Response for CHP / CCW Holders Course. This is a law enforcement grade course for responsible citizens. In the light of recent events and lengthy consideration we feel the time is necessary to prepare people to responsibly and effectively save lives prior to the arrival of law enforcement within the first few moments of an active shooter incident. Check out the article posted by the CBC news in Canada:

Quote from the article:
“It’s not just tracking,” said instructor D. J. “Dusty” Whiting, a retired federal agent now with Colorado-based Tac*One Consulting. “It’s situational awareness.” That’s what can keep officers safe as they learn to blend into the countryside, working and communicating silently as a team, hunting their quarry. >>> Read More
Quote from the article:
“Students who participated in the training learned skills such as how to read tracks from vehicles or foot impressions, how to assess terrain to be able to predict how a person would move through an area, map reading and land navigation, said Joe Deedon, the owner of Tac*One.” >> Read more
