While most of the dialogue around violence mitigation has focused on response, prevention has now taken center stage. If the "bad actor" can be identified before stepping onto the pathway to violence or crime, lives can be saved and assets protected. Join us as we explore guidance from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in developing threat assessment teams in K12 schools to detect, deter and prevent insiders from causing harm.
