Our 5 step process to protecting your organizations from Active Shooter / Workplace Violence Incidents:




Policies and Procedures:

Just like other policies and procedures in the workplace, Active Shooter policies and procedures are imperative. It should be categorized into your Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention procedures normally as a subsection, addendum or its own Emergency Operations Plan. Needless to say, it should be in writing and is designed to guide employees from the Top Down on what next step actions they need to take. The policy and procedures help your organization avoid inconsistencies, protect your organization from legal action, acts as a training tool and template, advise employees of their rights, guide your employees in best practices and safety.


Prevention / Intervention and Follow Through:

Prior to having an actual Workplace Violence incident, there should be some type of preventative measures in place to avoid an incident. This can be anything from an anonymous tip line, Employee Assistance Programs, Security, Protective Intelligence etc. aimed at preventing an actual incident from occurring. As we all know, sometimes preventative measures do not always work. An intervention must occur form Human Resources or a Threat Assessment Team in evaluating the situation, intervening and determining the next course of action. An intervention can be anything from a counseling session, termination or lead to an incident being unfounded. Additionally, it can be so critical that a termination is warranted, Law Enforcement is notified and additional security is requested. Intervening is import because it can prevent a major incident from occurring. Too many times companies / schools fail to take threats or aggressive behavior seriously in the beginning stages of WPV incident. Lastly is follow through. This is important because to many times we think a problem has be solved or the problem is extremely quiet. It's imperative that Threat Assessment Teams follow up on suspected WPV incidents and monitor them. Case in point is in the school systems when problem students are suspended. At times these students are plotting to get even with the schools and launch an attack. Or terminated employees waiting on an opportune moment to launch an attack / sabotage on their former employer. Following through or following up may prevent an incident as well.


Physical Security Survey / Security Assessment:

A Physical Security Survey, often called a Security Assessment, should be conducted on your property to properly ensure there is not any weaknesses in security in which an assailant or insider threat can exploit to conduct an attack or sabotage on your property. Our Security Assessments consist of a Threat Assessment, Vulnerability Assessment, Countermeasures and Solutions, Risk Assessment, Risk Management Alternatives. This best in class service is tailored to your specific location.


Incident / Post Incident Responsibilities:

Should an unfortunate incident occur, employees from the top down have the guidance, policy and procedures on which next step actions they should take to assist their organization. Incident responsibilities could be how conduct a lock down, initiate their mass notification system etc. Post incident responsibilities include, employee accountability, family staging area, family / victim support to name a few.


Training and Program Re-Evaluation:

At a minimum Active Shooter training / WPV training should be conducted on an annual basis to include a presentation and walk through "soft" scenario to ensure each employee understands what they need to do. Leaders need to determine what tasks are working well and which areas need improvement and implement those changes. Program Re-Evaluation should occur annually as well.


In closing, we hope this process aids you and your organization in implementing a successful WPVPI / Active Shooter program and motivates you to conduct training. For more information on these topics, feel free to contact us at
