Topic: How to Deal with An Active Shooter

Workplace homicides are on the rise, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were 417 cases in 2015—a 2 percent increase from 2014—and shootings rose by 15 percent, which was the first increase since 2012.

About 43 percent of female workers killed at the workplace were attacked by a relative or domestic partner—as compared to only 2 percent of male decedents.

Fights between co-workers are common and often aren't reported, say many HR professionals. But they may be a sign of worse violence to come. Employers need to be vigilant and understand that these things can happen.

So what can HR professionals do to help keep their workplaces safe?  Attend the January 9, 2018 meeting on How to Deal with an Active Shooter in the Workplace.

A representative from the Des Moines Police, Metro Special Tactics and Response (S.T.A.R) team will address our group and open it for questions and answers.  Plan to attend!

The Metro Special Tactics and Response (S.T.A.R.) operates as a specialized unit within the Homeland Security Bureau, providing personnel trained in the use of specialized equipment to handle a wide variety of critical incidents.
