Simply stated, the mission of Strategos International is to provide K-12 schools, universities, faith based, corporate, government, law enforcement and military professionals the highest quality security, safety and tactical training/consulting solutions available. Solutions that are both applicable and based in reality is critical to successfully applying these strategies and solutions when needed.
TRUE FIRST RESPONDERS vs. TRADITIONAL “FIRST RESPONDERS”
Strategos provides training and consulting solutions on these topics specifically focused towards the “TRUE FIRST RESPONDER”. The term “first responder” has always been reserved for those professionals (i.e., police, EMS, fire) “responding TO THE SCENE” of the emergency. Our training and consulting solutions are specifically focused towards the “TRUE FIRST RESPONDER” which we define as those “that are already on scene when the crisis incident” begins. Failure vs. Success is much more likely going to be determined by those on scene when the incident begins vs. traditional “first responders” whose effectiveness is severely limited simply because of the time it takes in responding to the location of the crisis incident.
Strategos International training and consulting strategies have been developed through years of “hands on” education, experience and client feedback to our founders and staff. Strategies and content are presented in a manner that is “principle based” and is designed to be customizable and scalable depending on the client’s unique requirements.
Summarized the CREED of our training and consulting services are that “CAPABILITY breeds HUMILITY”. In other words we believe that the more TRUE capability that a person (OR organization) is given to handle situations that are otherwise stressful or crisis oriented the more humility that they will handle these situations with. In other words crisis situations are more likely to be handled effectively and appropriately if the end user feels more capable to handle them rather than a situation unnecessarily being escalated because the end user is operating from a “fear based” mind set due to lack of capabilities received prior to the crisis incident. We have seen that these sort of “worse case” scenario incidents around the country have created a high level of anxiety within school, workplace, faith-based other public employee personnel. Additional benefits (other than increase response and prevention capabilities) is that preparing staff in advance through training and planning greatly reduces the amount of anxiety that is felt across the organization from those thinking, “What would I do if that were to happen here?!”.
I did not take this course seriously when I signed up for it. I had an eye opener after being involved. I had been so naïve, possibly at the expense of other’s lives. These men did an awesome job waking me up!
We get many threats, so new information and ideas are always welcome. Excellent presentation and information.
Information was very well presented!! The role playing scenario brought home to me how long three minutes actually is when you are scared!!! So empowering to be able to protect your room more than by just turning off the lights and locking the door! Excellent!! January 2, 2013

Outstanding presentation. Way to incorporate biblical principles into core mission of church! This course will help the church with implementing a sound security plan/policy.
Everything from curriculum, presentation and the personality of the instructor WAS HEAVEN SENT! Thanks so Much!
This course made us more aware. We will look at the policies we do have and see what we can improve upon to train our employees better.
The conference was well planned, material was relevant and the presentation was engaging. Instructor was well versed on the topics and could provide examples to help convey the information being presented.
Excellent delivery and quality of presentation. There were a number of good things that were brought out as we walked through the facilities and as the demonstrations showed us techniques for maintaining control and a more secure environment. I think the course has made me more aware of security issues and well as giving me more tools to help make the church more safe.
