Stopping Random Violence: Conference Teaches
How to Prevent Campus, Workplace Violence
November 19, 2007 - Security on school campuses in the workplace have come under the microscope following a series of tragic events around the nation.
Collin College is hosting "Random Actor Violence Prevention: Preventing Catastrophic Campus and Workplace Incidents" with noted author and speaker Dan Korem from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 5-6, at the Spring Creek Campus Conference Center, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, Texas. The conference is $350 for educators and law enforcement officials and $995 for other interested individuals.
Korem, a critically acclaimed author and investigative journalist, is head of Dallas-based Korem and Associates, which consults and trains companies, security and law enforcement agencies, schools and other organizations. He has published "Rage of the Random Actor," "The Art of Profiling" and "Suburban Gangs: The Affluent Rebels."
Over the two-day seminar, Korem will teach how educators, law enforcement and campus security officials and human resource employees can identify potential school shooters, bombers, random workplace killers or suicide terrorists -- all referred to as "random actors" -- and potentially prevent catastrophic events.
Attendees will learn to systematically profile a potential random actor without racial, ethnic or gender stereotyping. Also, they will learn about intervention concepts, protocols and stopping incidents and threats on campus or in the workplace.
