Aaron L. Witt

Aaron Witt is the Founder and Lead Consultant for A-Train Tactical, LLC. Aaron earned his Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice Administration from Ferris State University in 2003, and he has over 23 years of experience in the Criminal Justice field, including 20+ years of experience as a federal Law Enforcement Officer. Early in his career, Aaron learned the importance of physical security while working as a Corrections Officer at a maximum-security prison. Additionally, in 2011, Aaron attended FEMA's Emergency Management Institute located in Emmitsburg, Maryland where he completed the necessary training and was recognized as a Master Exercise Practitioner (MEP). Most importantly, Aaron has a passion for emergency preparedness, self-reliance, and the drive to help others recognize their potential.

Following a tragic school shooting in 2012, Aaron decided he wanted to start his own Active Threat consulting business because he thought that there was room for improvement regarding how organizations were being trained. For example, some organizations would send a representative or two to an Active Shooter conference at an off-site location. Many of these conferences consist of listening to a speaker provide a summary of prior attacks and talk about how Columbine changed the way law enforcement responds. The speakers usually provide some basic response principles and outline various topics your emergency plan should cover. Unfortunately, when your representative returns, you still don't have a plan or know where to start. A better strategy is to have a qualified practitioner visit your location to identify existing best practices and areas for improvement. You need someone who will work with you and your team to develop a plan that works for your personnel and others who may be visiting your site. Most importantly, you need someone who is qualified to develop, conduct, and evaluate discussion-based training at your location. The training should consist of plausible and realistic scenarios based on prior incidents and perceived threats. The training should also be designed to help your personnel better understand the importance of knowing your plan, being situationally aware, developing a survival mindset, and working as a team to overcome adversity during an emergency. 

"Our firm was established in 2018. We are focused on growing our business the right way by building strong working relationships with our clients and relying on those satisfied customers for quality referrals."​
