What Is Our Responsibility During an Active Shooter “Shelter in Place” Order?

We’ve just posted a new “Request Dr. Steve” web site write-up by Dr. Albrecht in our “Library Company, Protection, & Safety” portion of Library 2.“What Is Our Obligation Throughout an Active Shooter ‘Shelter in Place’ Order?” Below is the concern that was submitted:

In the circumstance of an active shooter shelter in location buy from one’s establishment, is a provided office/library serving the general public obligated to reduce customers of the general public from exiting?

At any stage is the division liable for the security of a human being who chooses not to shelter in spot and alternatively exiting the department/library?

At any point if a man or woman is prevented from leaving is the department illegally detaining a person?
