PLENARY - October 1, Las Vegas: The Deadliest Mass Shooting Committed by an Individual in U.S. History

Officer Bert Hughes, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department

On October 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire into an audience of nearly 22,000 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada.  During Jason Aldean’s performance on the closing night of the festival, gunshots can be heard but initially it’s unclear whether the sounds are part of the show or portend a mass shooting incident that will become the deadliest incident of its kind in United States history leaving 58 people dead and 851 injured (400+ by gunfire).  In this presentation representatives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will discuss the precautions their agency took for the event, the event itself, and the changes that were made after the event, including any lessons learned.

PLENARY PART 1 - The Aurora Theater Mass Shooting: When Tragedy Strikes Your Local & College Communities

Chief (Ret.) Doug Abraham, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Police Department; Commander (Ret.) Mike Dailey, Aurora, Colorado Police Department

On July 20, 2012, shortly after midnight a 25-year-old male, later identified as a student of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, entered a Century 16 theater in Aurora, Colorado in tactical gear and a gas mask, armed with a shotgun, rifle, pistol and tear gas.  In less than 5 minutes, he shot 70 innocent people, wounding 58 and killing 12. This multifaceted presentation by Retired Chief Doug Abraham of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Retired Commander Mike Dailey of the Aurora, Colorado Police Department will cover the unfolding of this tragedy and analyze the planning, preparation and execution of this crime, and the short and long-term after effects on both the local and campus communities following this deadly attack.

PLENARY: An On Campus Death Investigation Involving Multiple Agency Partnerships & Resources

Corporal Ken Hunter, Northern Arizona University Police Department

In March of 2018, a routine housing and maintenance inspection of an on-campus student apartment at Northern Arizona University took a very terrible turn when housing staff and maintenance personnel discovered a large amount of blood on the first floor walls and floor, leading up to the second floor. The staff continued to the second floor and found a deceased and nude male resident on the floor of the bedroom. The deceased had suffered superficial injuries on his neck and arm, but extreme injuries to the rest of the body. The gruesome injuries included fifteen stab wounds to the torso and exposed intestines that had also been punctured. The Northern Arizona University Police Department engaged assistance from the Flagstaff Police Department, Arizona Department of Public Safety Crime Lab & Crime Scene Response Unit, Coconino County Medical Examiner and other police partners in other city governments. This presentation will cover critical elements of a complex scene and case investigation as well as best practices in multi-jurisdictional collaboration.

PLENARY:  Clery and Title IX Implications of a Reported Hate Crime

 

Ann Todd, Director of Compliance Activities & Senior Investigator, D. Stafford & Associates

Classifying hate crimes under the Clery Act is challenging due to the number of criminal offenses and categories of bias that could qualify an act as a hate crime.  When the bias is on the basis of gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, it also has implications under Title IX.  During this program, we will review the intersections of the two laws as it relates specifically to hate crimes and examine checklists for classifying reports accurately on campus. 

Ann Todd, Esq. is a seasoned, human resources professional for higher education and non-profit organizations with expertise in organizational development, employee relations, workforce planning, policy creation, diversity, and training. From 2008-2016, Ms. Todd served as the Assistant Director of Human Resources at Davidson College with the responsibility of managing employee relations and the learning and development function. While at the college, she was responsible for Employee Title IX cases and campus-wide training on the issues of sexual harassment and sexual violence.  Prior to entering the field of human resources, Ms. Todd practiced law in Charlotte, NC, specializing in employment and civil rights, and worked for several non-profit organizations. Ms. Todd joined D. Stafford & Associates (DSA) in 2015 as a consultant for institutions on Title IX and VAWA, advising on policy, conducting training and leading investigations. She is a popular speaker, trainer, and consultant on a wide variety of topics beyond Title IX including compliance, leadership, and diversity. Ms. Todd is a member of the NC Bar and is certified 360 facilitators through the Center for Creative Leadership. She is a graduate of Davidson College with a degree in psychology and holds a JD from the University of Nebraska.
