Workplace violence is a priority for all security professionals. The most frightening and compelling element is an active shooter. Current events across the county dramatically illustrate that no one is immune to this tragic possibility. These dynamic situations require bold, immediate, and sometimes unconventional responses. This program presents the necessary components of preparation strategies that include planning, prevention, mitigation, and response to active shooters. Your company must embrace the importance of preparing for and rehearsing what is known as a "survival mindset." Best practices are discussed throughout the program.

Current economic stressors can potentially serve as "tipping points" for active shooter incidents. Don't take a chance—prepare for the worst. Awareness + Action = Prevention

 Who Should Attend

 Program Overview

Recognizing and Preventing Workplace Violence
No "profile" exists to predict at-risk and potentially violent persons, but signs and flags most often are present prior to violent acts. These signs and flags may be observed in the person's thinking, emotions, and/or behaviors and allow for reporting and intervention in informal and formal violence risk assessment procedures. These are covered, as well as the barriers to reporting or taking action.

The nature of violence and violent behavior is explained and case studies from workplaces and school/campus settings are discussed. Learn about the copycat effect. Focus on the behavior of offenders and the pathway to violence.
