Workplace Violence Prevention Training!
Learn the true warning signs to look for, not just possible behaviors, as utilized by those responsible for making such determinations to protect the President of the United States. Participants will walk away understanding how they can assess and intervene to prevent potentially violent situations, manage and monitor at-risk individuals, and begin to develop workplace threat-assessment teams and violence prevention programs that are both successful as well as mitigate liabilities.
This conference is primarily intended for professionals working in or for Government Agencies, Law Enforcement and specialized Corporate Security/Risk Managers.
