Identify, assess + manage persons with the interest, motive, intention and capability for violence

When a threat of violence first surfaces — to you or your family, to your employees or clients or to others — three threat assessment priorities become urgent and critical. The first is determining whether the individual poses a threat of violence. The second is assessing the person’s potential for violence. And the third is employing best practices to increase security and actively manage the threat by integrating and coordinating critical involvement by multiple parties.
