One of the most important missions of any organization is to keep the people involved in its operation safe. Our staff have worked for over thirty-five years
with the nation's most elite law enforcement agencies, companies and
universities to provide training that helps identify, assess, and manage threats
before violence occurs. Our work has been featured on 60 Minutes, The Wall
Street Journal, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.
We provide interactive programs that proactively minimize the potential risk of unsafe, undesirable and costly situations. The following is a representative list of services we offer:
Preventing Violence in Universities: Behavioral Threat Assessment
Interactive training based on the latest research conducted by the U.S. Secret Service, FBI, and
the Department of Education on threat assessment and prevention of targeted school violence.
Interactive Behavioral Simulations™ are customized for the unique needs and culture of each university.
Preventing Violence in the Workplace
This training session familiarizes participants with key principles and strategies of violence prevention as part of a company-wide effort to provide a safe workplace. Strategies are presented that help attendees determine if someone could pose a threat and demonstrates who to contact when concerning workplace behavior occurs.
Participants participate in Interactive Behavioral Simulations™ created that reflect potential real-world company events.
