9780128027844: Active Shooter: Preparing for and Responding to a Growing Threat

According to Pinkerton―the leading provider of risk management services in the world―workplace violence is second only to cybersecurity as the top threat faced by organizations today. Incidents involving active shooters in the workplace are on the rise and becoming more violent and deadly. Active Shooter provides the tools necessary to identify potential violent individuals, along with the options and responses needed to save lives, reduce corporate liability, and recover from an active shooter event should it happen.

Active Shooter begins with a brief history of active shooters and how they have changed over time. It shows why many perpetrators initiate attacks, what they often are thinking, and some of the indicators that could have been identified prior to the attack. The book shows how to develop an active shooter program in an organization, walking readers through the entire process including training exercises to test the efficiency of the program. With the uniquely private security perspective, Active Shooter illustrates how to communicate with law enforcement, government agencies, and the media in the event of active shooter incident. The book concludes with a discussion of how organizations can recover promptly after an incident, which is crucial for operational survival.

  • Illustrates what businesses should consider prior to, during, and after an active shooting event, including developing business continuity plan
  • Demonstrates the importance of preparedness, an effective coordinated response, and planning all the way down to the frontline employee
  • Addresses the private sector and public sector coordination efforts needed for an effective active shooter program
  • Offers teaching and learning tools such as text boxes, end-of-chapter discussion questions, lists of key DHS, FBI and FEMA websites and resources, as well as training exercises and case studies
