Reviews

"For organizations that have not developed procedures to deter or respond to violent incidents in the workplace and those that do not understand the concept of these issues, this could be a helpful guide." --ASIS Dynamics, Workplace Safety

"The authors close with the hope that their book ‘will spark discussions in workplaces and help bring about the development of effective, reasonable, defendable programs designed to protect people by preventing violence’. They have done a good job." --Professional Security Magazine Online
