Security Training and Advisory Services

Helping electric cooperatives prepare for the unexpected

InDev Tactical[1] (InDev) has training and advisory services tailored for electric co-ops. We specialize in building skills for: effective response to the unexpected, staying safe while protecting life and property during the critical first minutes of a crisis, and response-handoff to arriving emergency personnel.


What is the InDev difference? Our unique fusion of combat-honed security skills and multi-generational electric cooperative experience allows InDev to bring security and emergency response techniques refined in the hills of Afghanistan to your co-op.


InDev consultants have years of international security experience combined with in-depth knowledge of security program application at electric co-ops. Jim Willis, CEO, is a Certified Master Anti-Terrorism Specialist and Homeland Security Expert[2] making him a sought-after security expert and speaker. Jim has more than 30 years domestic and international experience with electric distribution systems, G&Ts, and NRECA.  He used his extensive security experience in insecure areas such as Afghanistan and South Sudan to develop ASSISTã, InDev’s proprietary active shooter and violence prevention training series.
