THE CRITICAL AGGRESSION PREVENTION SYSTEM (CAPS)
Nearly all plans to deal with workplace or campus violence assume the horrific acts of an individual intent on hurting or killing others are impossible to prevent. As a result, most plans are structured to deal with victims and minimize the after-effects. Meanwhile the rest of humanity is left to ponder why. Were there tell-tale signs? Is there a way to recognize individuals who are likely to become dangerous to others?
At the Center for Aggression Management, we know that identifying someone who’s on the path to violence before they hurt others is possible. For more than 26 years we have trained leaders to implement our unique and scientifically validated Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) in organizations and institutions around the world. CAPS provides corporate security officers, campus police, SROs, student affairs leaders, human resource leaders and mental health professionals a common language and framework to identify, track and respond appropriately when pre-cursor behaviors emerge. Because of our evidence- and behavior-based approach, CAPS is able to do this without violating HIPAA, FERPA or the Civil Rights Act of 1964. CAPS helps end the violence – including other malicious behaviors like bullying, abuse, harassment, discrimination and conflict -- before it occurs.
THE SECRET THAT NO ONE IS SHARING:
From the Moment of Commitment (that’s when an assailant decides to pull his weapon and start shooting) to when the first round is discharged, is just 2 seconds!
No Security Professional, No Law Enforcement Officer, no matter how well trained or equipped, can reliably be on scene in just 2 seconds! So, the first secret is out, you are on your own!
Security and/or Law Enforcement will eventually arrive on scene and do what they have been trained to do. Which brings us to the second secret: Security and Law Enforcement are trained to step over those dead, dying and/or wounded victims in order to get to the shooter! Is this acceptable to you? What if you are the target of this active shooter? What if it is your children in school?
There is no absolute (100%) violence prevention, but there is scientifically reliable violence prevention and our scientifically validated Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) is the only system that achieves this high objective!
