 *When you have successfully completed all of the requirements of the Tier 2 - Operator program, you will have demonstrated the baseline skills of police SWAT/SRT operators*, which we define as proficiency with handgun and rifle, and the ability to move and fight effectively as an individual or in a small team. The specialty skills of sniper, breacher, negotiator, or tactical driver are less applicable to private citizens in defense of home, business, church, school, and community, and we do not teach them. DSI training will help you develop shooting and gun handling skills comparable to the best police and military operators, which will enable you to consistently achieve hits on target, at realistic ranges, under stress, in low light, faster than your adversary. Your judgment and decision making skills will ensure that you use force legally and appropriately, without endangering the innocent. Your mastery of individual tactics will let you avoid a fight where possible, and fight from a position of advantage where you must. You will be able to work safely and effectively in a team with other similarly trained operators in any urban or suburban environment. Your tactical medicine skills will enable you to save lives when seconds count and EMS is minutes away. Your tactical communications skills and means will allow you coordinate within and across teams. Your DSI training is an integrated package that will reward you with top-level skills in all these areas for a commitment of approximately 150 hours of on-range work, and the equivalent in guided study and practice.

The Schmitts - A Study Of One Family's Struggle To Defend Life, Business, Church, School and Community

The case study is a composite construction of actual events and relationships experienced by the authors. Names and locations have been changed, and the resulting study, while the work of fiction, is representable of the realities facing many individuals, businesses and communities today. The setting for the case study is Detroit, a city that is a precursor for the conflicts to come. The case study includes:

  • The story of Auto Parts Distributors (APD), including it's founding, owners, employees and history.
  • A security briefing which describes the threats that confront APD.
  • A site survey detailing the physical premises.
  • Mission Essential Task List (METL) for the defense of APD.
  • Wargaming a gang assault on APD.
  • After Action Report (AAR) of an actual assault.

DISTRIBUTED SECURITY, INC. is the creator of Distributed Security Networks, a distributed security strategy enabling businesses to develop Distributed Security Bases and operate private security forces capable of defending life and property. We offer enterprises a turnkey package of services for business including infrastructure, training, provisioning and outsourcing.

What is a Distributed Security Network (DSN)?

Detroit DSN TTC MapDistributed Security Networks are various combinations of businesses, schools, churches and communities who collaborate to defend against violent threats.

Distributed Security Network encompasses a territory composed of Distributed Security Bases (DSB) supported by a central tactical training center (TTC).

Business enterprises anchor DSN’s by developing on-premise Distributed Security Bases and establishing, training, and, maintaining private security forces capable of defending the immediate community from violent threat.

Communities are facing a dizzying array of escalating threats including lone gunmen, violent mobs, organized criminals, common criminals and jihadist terrorist groups a.k.a. “decentralized” threats. These threats can’t be stopped by a centralized (government) response. If we want to mitigate these types of attacks then we need a distributed security strategy that enables trained citizens to be on the scene when the threat manifests.

Why are we focusing on businesses defending the local community? What about law enforcement, the National Guard, Homeland Security, the FBI or the DOJ? All major recipients of tax dollars ostensibly for the defense of civilian life and property within the US. Do civilians need to take a proactive role in defending life and property?

The reason we focus on the role of business is because we are on the brink of an inevitable conflict that will weaken, perhaps destroy the rule of law and civil conduct. The government institutions that we have come to depend upon for security and civility will not provide the level of security and civility that we depended upon in the past. 

Why do business enterprises anchor the DSN?

Detroit DSB Build FinalWeapons, ammunition and training cost money. One of the greatest challenges facing those who are responsible for the defense of a country or the security of a population is funding the effort.

Businesses are uniquely suited because of the activities they conduct, and their economic role within the community. Businesses recruit, train and manage their own private security force including building and maintaining their own training facilities. They also form the hub or “security base” of a local community DSN integrating local churches, schools and other businesses into one network.

Most importantly, businesses have the means and the competencies necessary to operate a Distributed Security Base (DSB) as a profit center.

Businesses generally function within a local geography; street, block, neighborhood, village etc. Local customers, local employees and in some cases local vendors with shared identities. Most private enterprises have a strong identity of interest between owners, managers and employees to defend their community, setting up the opportunity to create a simpatico environment.

Is this for my enterprise?

The best business candidates for developing a Distributed Security Base exhibit the following characteristics:

1. Are located in a community vulnerable to attack.
2. Have at least 100 employees in a single location.
3. Are privately-owned with support from employees and managment.
4. Currently outsourcing security requirements.
5. Have the support of local law enforcement.  

We offer a turnkey package for businesses.

Distributed Security, Inc offers business enterprises a single source turn-key package of services for the development of a private security base and operation of a dedicated private security force. The turnkey package includes infrastructure, training, provisioning and outsourcing.

If you would like to learn more about Distributed Security Networks then please request a briefing.

The briefings are done principal to principal, we do not use a sales staff, so we ask that your most senior staff participate. The briefings take about 2 hours with questions and are done via GoToMeeting. All participants need to a be at a desktop or laptop computer to participate.
