Spencer Investigations

KAREN “KAZ” RHOADS

Kaz’s background is weighted heavily as a first responder from EMS to 911 call taking, from civilian focused defensive tactics instruction & anti-terrorism training to active shooter pro-active defense (ALICE* trainer since 2014).   Kaz enjoys and is accomplished at addressing large and diverse groups regarding volatile and emotionally charged topics.  Additionally, Kaz’s investigative experience as a Truancy Officer, her mediation/de-escalation and customer service skills, and her experience facilitating group training are an ideal fit as Team Leader to develop and present active shooter/threat defense tactics training for Spencer Investigations. 

* ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate). This program provides proactive response options to increase survivability during acts of violence committed in workplaces, businesses, schools and faith based organizations. Similar in theory to “RUN, HIDE, FIGHT”.
