Universal Security Staff working at Chicago O´Hare and Chicago Midway Airports have received advanced active shooter response training from Archway Defense, the company said.

The company said guards have been trained to identify, respond and mitigate acts of terrorism along with active shootings in the aviation sector. Threats and violence directed at transportation networks worldwide has increased the need for this type of active shooter and mass casualty event training.
