On June 12, ASIS International released the following statement in the aftermath of the Orlando mass shooting in Orlando:
ASIS International sends its heartfelt condolences to the victims of the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, as well as to their family members, friends and the entire Orlando community. The massacre represents the latest reprehensible attack on innocent civilians.
It is clear that terrorists and other attackers are now routinely targeting citizens where they play, where they shop, where they meet and where they relax. The cumulative result is an attack on civilized society and values, and on fundamental human dignity.
In light of this trend, ASIS is making available free of charge many of its materials on active shooters and protecting soft targets — including whitepapers, articles, webinars and book chapters — to communities, organizations, businesses and government agencies. ASIS International is the leading association worldwide for professionals responsible for protecting people, property and information.
ASIS members, who include experts in all aspects of security in hundreds of chapters worldwide, are united in their commitment to protect their communities. ASIS members are available to provide advice and assistance to communities to prepare for and prevent these types of attacks.
