It may not seem like it, but violence in the workplace is prevalent all over the United States. Perhaps it’s because many people think the definition of workplace violence is limited to physical altercations and deaths. In reality, workplace violence can include signs of aggressive behavior, like making threats against or physically shoving a coworker.
Knowing what is considered violence in the workplace is crucial, and if you ever suspect that a coworker may be showing signs of aggression or any behavior that is out of character, it’s best to reach out to a trustworthy authority, such as those in upper management positions or your Employment Assistance Program (EAP).more
When you think about a personal security bodyguard, your mind might wander to high-profile business leaders or celebrities. However, bodyguards and personal protection officers aren’t just for the stars — they are for anyone who has safety concerns. According to the American Psychiatric Association, U.S. adults are becoming increasingly anxious. About 40% of adults ages 18 to 34 report that they are extremely anxious about keeping their family safe. Seeking bodyguard services can help alleviate some worries about health and safety.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), about 3.4 million people work in protective service occupations as of May 2018.

While mass shootings have happened all over the globe, they are a particularly American phenomenon. Whatever the reason for the shootings — lax gun laws, mental illness, friends or family who know someone may commit a mass shooting but fail to speak out — the term “active shooter” has become a phrase that strikes fear into the hearts of people from coast to coast.
While experts and police officers sometimes disagree on the definition of a mass shooting, in most cases, it represents an event where one or more individuals shoot and kill at least four people. Today, it may seem strange to think that before Aug. 1, 1966, there had only been 25 such occurrences in the history of the United States. On that summer day, Charles Whitman went to the observation deck of the Texas Tower at the University of Texas, opened fire and killed 17 people before police eventually took him out.
There was a time when many Americans thought an active shooter incident could never happen in their community. Almost no one believes this now. Newtown, Charlotte, Orlando, Washington, San...more
