After the tragic Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that claimed 11 lives, the faith-based community and other gathering places have found themselves left with an almost unfathomable, but inevitably relevant question: “what if a shooting happens here next?”

With the world around us becoming increasingly digitized and video surveillance becoming more prevalent, legal professionals have become faced with a growing level of digital evidence culled from the security and law enforcement communities; in fact, some would suggest that effective investigations, loss control, liability reduction and safety enforcement now hinges on such evidence to remain effective.

The Dilemma


In this new millennium forward-thinking security executives know that it’s virtually impossible to purchase security technologies on the cheap. This is especially true since terrorism hit our shores in early September 2001 – when virtually every American began buying security-related technologies by the bushel and the prices began to skyrocket.How does a security administrator proceed? One possible approach to solving this dilemma might lie in learning to think outside of the proverbial box and seek to implement less costly security strategies that can do the job effectively. In today’s budget-conscious atmosphere, stretching the security dollar is both an art and a science. The art lies in the company’s ability to solve protection related deficiencies using existing resources, whilst the science lies in architecting protection strategies that meet and/or exceed industry benchmarks. Obviously, if security enhancement dollars are readily available then all is well. But in most cases such dollars are scarce and the secret to achieving success in this endeavor may lie in finding low cost initiatives that can further strengthen and deepen protection availability without blowing up the budget.

TASA ID: 2774

The Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by Nikolas Cruz was initially blamed on the poor response from the Broward County Sheriff’s Department and school security.
However, an investigation by the SERAPH School Safety team has found a much darker series of failures by adults in Cruz’s personal life and school life.

Bullet Behavior

TASA ID: 8673

Ricochet Characteristics: 

Smaller, faster moving bullets tend to fragment upon impact rather than ricochet so they would have a lower or more acute critical angle than larger, slower moving bullets.  With this in mind, a .45 ACP moving at approximately 800 fps is an ideal cartridge to use when conducting experiments with ricochets.  Investigators in the field typically would not have the requisite information available to estimate a critical angle when a ricochet marking is discovered at a crime scene so field testing with a similar cartridge and the same or similar substrate would be a benefit to the CSI’s analysis when calculating the approximate critical angle is necessary.
