The doubling of active shooter incidents, three consecutive years of violent crime increases, a 30-year high in the rate of suicides, and a quadrupling of the number of natural disasters over the last half century all illustrate the critical need for individuals with the passion and training to address the complex challenges we face today. Through the Institute, CSFS has the honor and privilege of offering another vehicle for providing education and training to passionate individuals who know that what we are experiencing now is not the world we need to live in tomorrow, and that we truly can do better.
