“When I first heard that I was being sent to ALICE by my director, I’ll admit that I wasn’t too excited. Then, when I met our instructor Sean, I knew I was in the right place.  When he began talking about Boyd’s OODA Loop and the use of diversionary tactics and creation of distance, I was sold. I don’t tell my kids to huddle under a desk and wait to be killed, and the ALICE curriculum spoke my language. By the end of day 2 and the scenarios, I was totally on board. I’ve been preaching the gospel of ALICE ever since. So much so, that I went to my director and told him that we must bring Sean and ALICE back. It is my intention to contact my ‘personal networks’ not only in law enforcement, but in the public school community and even my state legislators. I want to help turn Arkansas in an ALICE state.”
