Report: ‘Bringing Calm to Chaos’

farook-malik-copyOn December 2, 2015, Islamic terrorists Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, attacked Farook’s office holiday party in San Bernardino, California, killing 14 and wounding 22. Farook and Malik were killed in a shootout with area law enforcement on the same day.

Now the US Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services and the Police Foundation have released a 162-page critical incident report entitled ‘Bringing Calm to Chaos — A critical incident review of the San Bernardino public safety response to the December 2, 2015 terrorist shooting incident at the Inland Regional Center.’

It is a ‘lessons learned’ report that focuses specifically on the San Bernardino incident.  However, it has much broader applications to the range of active shooter and hostile events generally.  The report discusses leadership; command and control; planning and response; investigations; community engagements, relationships, and public information; and responder and victim welfare and mental health.

  1. Yesterday’s Los Angeles Times had a story about this incident that I found chilling. I was in California when this terrible incident happened. It was covered live by many television channels for many hours. The coordination and cooperation between the many agencies was commendable from my vantage point – though a television. Although I will probably not read the report, I would hope that all agencies throughout the United States would read it and take note.
