Targeted Violence, Threat Assessments & Active Shooter Response Strategies
Wednesday, October 29th 2014 in Santa Maria, CA
Highlights of the Training
There has been a deadly convergence of workplace violence, school-place violence and domestic violence to what is best described as targeted violence. Targeted violence is not an event, but rather a process. This intermediate to advanced training will focus on warning signs of a threat potential, pathway of targeted violence, and approaches to initial and comprehensive threat assessments. The content presented is applicable to the public, private, academic, and organizational arenas; threat posturing, preparatory behaviors and rehearsal fantasies of targeted violence know no bounds. Active shooter response strategies for civilians will also be presented, with more functional and realistic strategies of evade, barricade and overwhelm. Key Points:
- Recognize differences between opportunistic violence and targeted violence.
- Identify warning signs of a pathway of targeted violence.
- Perform initial threat assessments by assessing for threat posturing, preparatory behaviors and rehearsal fantasies of targeted violence.
- Describe evade, barricade and overwhelm response strategies to an active shooter on site/campus.
