Guest Speaker

Adam Coleman, FWPD

Fort Worth Police Department

Topic: “Active Shooter”

Learning Objectives:

Active shooter incidents are becoming more frequent and severe. Considering recent events in the workplace, on campus and on the road, we are unfortunately faced with a new awareness of the growing trend of this behavior.

What exactly is an Active Shooter? What is the mentality of an Active Shooter? What are the triggers? As practitioners, how can we help prevent or at least minimize the impact of this new trend in our social environment? 

Officer Coleman will discuss case studies with current data on the subject and help us understand how to deal with an active situation. This session will invite discussion and empower attendees to seek the answer to the question, What if…?

About the Speaker:

Adam Coleman has over 11 years experience with the Fort Worth Police Department. In those years, he has responded to a countless number of traumatic events. According to published media accounts, while responding to a fiery rollover accident on I35 in 2008, Officer Coleman and his partner rescued a victim from a burning SUV. In 2013, Officer Coleman came upon a crowd surrounding a man who was unconscious on the ground. He administered CPR on the scene and continued during emergency transit to JPS. Both victims survived these events while Coleman did not seek recognition for his part in these acts.

He proudly states he met the love of his life at the University of Oklahoma and they are happily married with 3 children. The most random fact about Adam is that in his backyard, he has the longest private zip line inside the loop of Fort Worth...and his 7 year old son can't get on it enough!
