Understand Workplace Violence -- Please!

In the January 2005 issue of Access Control & Security Systems, J. Branch Walton authors an article entitled Predicting the Unpredictable. In the article, Branch includes some common-sense approaches to being ready to deal with workplace violence. The key is in recognizing that workplace violence can happen anywhere (yes, even your business) and in preparing to deal with it.

Branch is the president of Profit Protection, LLC. He had a 21-year career with the United States Secret Service, retiring as the Special Agent-in-Charge of a field office. Post retirement activity included Cummins Engine Co., Columbus, In, where he was a well-known speaker and author on workplace violence, and he has consulted for publishers and video producers on the subject. He is a criminal justice instructor at the University of Indiana and also instructs at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center at Glynco, Georgia.

This link to the Access Control & Security Systems article is likely to expire within 30 days.
