The reality of the world we live in is business and community leaders need to be aware of individuals who exhibit warning behaviors of violence and know how to respond with the knowledge and strategy to stabilize and prevent violence.
At Bolante.NET, we believe threat assessment and management is proactive, not reactive, and requires a comprehensive review of the situation, context, and subject’s psycho-social and behavioral dynamics. By preparing for the worst and educating ourselves, we take the power away from the perpetrator and place it in our own hands. The team at Bolante.NET passionately advocates that every business and community organization have a threat management plan in place on how to prevent, react and respond to an active violent or natural disaster threat.
