About ARMOURED ONE

We are a swat based company.

Armoured One

Armoured One is dedicated to one mission, “Our Mission is to provide real-world solutions to save lives from an active shooter attack.” We are founded by a SWAT Operator who is partnered with Subject Matter Experts from FBI, Secret Service, Homeland Security, NYS Homeland Security, Navy Seals, Delta Force Operators, and Detectives who have been studying active shooter attacks since 1985. We understand that each active shooter attack is unique and because of this, we have developed specialized products and training to meet the separate needs of k-12 schools, higher education, businesses, government, health care, and religious organizations. Our solutions are dictated by each shooter's actions in current and past attacks. This information is utilized to be proactive against such threats.


What We Do

Armoured One is able to solely focus on k-12, higher education, government, and business security, which means we understand the importance of separating industries to customize solutions. All of our products, training, assessments, and preparedness plans are completely customized for you individually.

CEO/Co-Founder

Tom Czyz

Tom is a former SWAT Team Operator and former Homicide Detective who is a father of 6 and husband to a city high school teacher. He began Armoured One because he realized after the Sandy Hook attack in 2012 that he could not keep his own kids safe while they were at school. Tom put together the best active shooter experts he could find from SWAT Team members, elite Military personnel, and Federal Agents to ensure he was creating a company that could do it right. Armoured One has former FBI active shooter profilers, Homeland Security active shooter subject matter experts, Navy Seals, Delta Force and Secret Service Agents who help create programs that are overseen by school teachers that make sure the instruction is taught in a way that is received the best. Armoured One sends investigators to school active shooter attacks, like the one in Parkland Florida, to reinvestigate the scene to make sure that the training and recommendations being made by Armoured One are working. Armoured One’s active shooter training has been taught to tens of thousands of school staff members across the nation and is received at over a 97% rating of excellent. Armoured One’s training and products have been proven to work in an real active shooter school attack where no lives were lost.
