  Every person should learn simple, effective violence prevention and response tactics and techniques. You should learn them if your personal safety is important to you or if you value the safety of others with whom you live and work -- your family, friends and co-workers. This segment will show you how to plan for, prevent, or react appropriately to potentially violent encounters -- at work and at home.

People generally make terrible -- and often inappropriate -- decisions during a potential or actual violent event. Following the simple and effective strategies and tactics presented during this presentation will significantly reduce your likelihood of becoming a victim -- or at least increase your chances of survival if you do become a victim.

This presentation addresses the increasing threat of violence -- including the mystique about workplace violence -- that presents special concerns for the Security Officer and an institution's employees. Statistically, one in every four Americans will become the victim of a violent act during their lifetimes, either at home, at work -- or anywhere in between. One of every six violent events occurs in the workplace. And most people are unprepared to make the decisions that may save their lives. The likelihood of becoming a victim of a violent crime is present in the related crimes of simple assault, sexual assault, burglary, robbery, extortion, hostage events, bomb threats, relationship abuse, terrorist acts and "random" assaults.

Among the topics to be presented are:
  • What events often occur -- personally and professionally -- that will likely lead to violence
  • Who the offenders really are -- and how they target potential victims
  • How you can combine general safety strategies with specific techniques and tactics to defeat an offender's plan
  • When victims are most vulnerable -- and what behavioral options exist
  • Where the most common locations are for offenders to attack -- and how to recognize potentially dangerous situations
  • Why targets of violent events survived -- the benefits of logical vs. emotional decision-making
  • How using hypothetical problem-solving scenarios helps you to create effective self-defense plans
