The Truth About John Nottingham’s Tactical Training in Arizona

September 20, 2010

John, (John Nottingham was at the time contracted with HELIX Tactical/Arizona Security Professionals)

Just a quick note, to thank you, and all of the cadre and staff, at AZ Security Professionals, for yesterday’s unarmed security guard training certification class. It was a fun, enjoyable and highly instructive session, which very much surpassed my expectations.

Having been in the Arizona Security business for over twenty years now, as a client receiving contract guard services, and as an employee of a contract Security company, I’ve seen a great deal of sub-par training and operations. ASP is definitely the cream of the crop, and I was so impressed, with everything I saw.

More to the point, your training style, broad knowledge, of a wide range of topics, and delivery is exceptional, and it was crystal clear, that you are a true professional and gentleman, with a tremendous amount of zeal, for your job and chosen profession. Thank you again, John, continued good luck to you, sir, and maybe our paths will cross again. Take care.

To Jim Harter
From R. Summers
I just wanted to thank you and your other instructors for an awesome class. I thought I would be bored and this would be a normal training session to get my guard card. I want to be the first to tell how wrong I was about that assumption. The instructors took a lot of time with everyone in the class to make sure we left with more then a piece of paper. I would recommend you to anyone seeking professional training.
Thank you!
R. Summers

Dear Jim Harter,
I just wanted to tell you that you guys saved my life. When I left class taught by your instructors, it changed my life. I even changed my diet. I am now better aware of how things can go wrong very quickly and now possess the skills to do something about it, while using what I was taught. If you guys needed a cheerleader, I would be your 300lb cheerleader. I loved it…loved it. I thought I was a bad ass, until you all proved me wrong and showed me what I did not know. WOW…WOW”
Thank you,

Gunman Takes Hostage at Discovery Building in Maryland

Gunman Takes Hostage at Discovery Building in Maryland
Comments by John Nottingham in [italics and brackets].
AP – Police block the street in front of the headquarters of Discovery Channel networks building in Silver

By SARAH BRUMFIELD, Associated Press Writer – 7 mins ago
SILVER SPRING, Md. – A gunman with what police described as “concerns” with the Discovery Channel networks took at least one person hostage in the company’s suburban Washington headquarters Wednesday.

According to
“Police Talking to Suspect, Who Witnesses Say Fired Multiple Shots and May Have Explosives; No Injuries Reported” “Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger said at 1 p.m. the gunman entered through the main entrance of the building wearing what seemed to be metallic canister devices strapped to his front and back and waving a handgun.”

Montgomery County Police Capt. Paul Starks said police were communicating with the man. He would not say if the man works for Discovery Communications or worked there in the past.

A law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing said authorities have identified James J. Lee as the likely suspect. Police believe he has a handgun but have not confirmed that he has explosives, the official said.

Montgomery County fire spokesman Capt. Oscar Garcia said no one was hurt. He said bomb technicians responded to the scene and the initial report was of a suspicious package that might be explosive. He said some employees had left the building.

[This reinforces the importance of having and practicing evacuation procedures. It saved thousands on 9-11. Reduce exposure time to potentially dangerous situations. Change the context.]

Montgomery County Police Cpl. Dan Friz told WJLA-TV that a tactical team was trying to get in touch with the gunman, who was being monitored on closed circuit TV.

Adam Dolan, a sales director in Discovery’s education division, told The Associated Press by phone that he was heading to lunch with a co-worker when he heard there was a situation in the building.

He was told to go back up to the top floor, lock the door and turn off the lights. Eventually the workers were herded down a stairwell and told to go home.

“Everyone was very scared, but at the same time … I think people were calm and collected and responded as one would expect in this situation,” said Dolan, 28.

AP/Jose Luis Magana
When he got to the bottom floor, he saw shattered glass near the company’s daycare and suspected it was broken to get the children out. He later got an e-mail that all the children were safe and had been taken to a McDonalds.
Dolan said the company has unarmed security guards who won’t let anyone into the building without a badge.

Another person inside the building told The Associated Press the gunman had something strapped to his chest and had hostages. The person asked not to be identified, saying people inside were told not to speak to the media.
ATF and FBI officials also said they were responding. Authorities descended on the area, and people were being kept away from the main drag of the downtown area where the building is located amid restaurants and shops. Traffic in the area was jammed.

Discovery Communications Inc. operates cable and satellite networks in the U.S., including The Discovery Channel, TLC and Animal Planet. Discovery shows include “Cash Cab” and “Man vs. Wild,” and TLC airs “American Chopper” and “Kate Plus Eight.”

Animal Planet also airs the controversial series “Whale Wars,” about attempts by environmentalists to disrupt the Japanese whaling industry.
Associated Press Writers Terence Hunt, Matt Apuzzo and Nafeesa Syeed in Washington, Ben Nuckols in Baltimore and Jacob Jordan in Atlanta contributed to this report.
