Crime & Criminals: Risks & Mitigations (Webinar by John Hearne)

December 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST


CSA is excited to welcome John Hearne of Two Pillars Training for this in-depth exploration of criminal psychology and empirical evidence of victimization dynamics. How much preparation is too much? What are you preparing for? Have you based your training regimen on realistic odds and stakes? Or are you just paranoid?

Crime and Criminals: Risks and Mitigations
by John Hearne

This online course was developed to give everyday citizens a more realistic understanding of the state of crime in the United States today. Only with reliable information can you build a realistic training regimen and make informed decisions about how to best avoid being victimized. As a veteran law enforcement officer, a longtime defensive firearms trainer, and credentialed criminology scholar, John Hearne’s well-researched webinar will help you better distinguish between preparation and paranoia.

Covered Topics: 

  • Crime data and stats
  • Sources of crime data (strengths and weaknesses)
  • Myths about crime trends
  • Dynamics of victimization
  • Realities of the criminal justice system
  • Conviction and incarceration data
  • Criminal psychology
  • Victimization and victim selection research
  • Victimization avoidance
  • And more!
