Outside Training-Bomb Threat Protocols for Schools
Campus Safety Webinar Series Thought Leadership Webcast Series: Bomb Threat Protocols for SchoolsDecember 8, 2016 at 2pm EST Moderator: Zach Winn, Associate Editor,Campus Safety MagazineGuest Speaker: Gary Sigrist Jr., CEO & President, Safeguard Risk Solutions, LLC.Join us for a FREE 1- Hour Webcast from CS on Dec. 8th, featuring Gary L. Sigrist Jr. of Safeguard Risk Solutions, to help your Campus develop a protocol for dealing with Bomb Threats all while protecting students, staff, and assets on your Campus.Reserve Your Seat Bomb threats to schools are nothing new. Since the invention of the pay phone, schools have had to deal with both the threat and disruption of the school day because of bomb threats. Because of targeted acts of violence against schools, most schools around the country have worked to harden the target,' making it more difficult for those wishing to harm our students and staff to get inside the building to cause harm. Due to these improved security enhancements, if a perpetrator wants to cause harm they must get the students and staff outside of the building. A bomb threat is the perfect means for putting our students and staff at risk by causing them to exit the building and putting them out in the open. Attend this Campus Safety Webcast and learn: How a positive school climate will reduce the risks of both bomb threats and all school violence. How to develop relationships with First Responders to develop bomb threat protocols. How a school's respo

Outside Training- Making Discipline Stick: Protecting Employees
Course Summary:The vast majority of citizen complaints and internal acts of employee misconduct encountered by government agencies are generated by a small number of problem individuals. It is crucial, therefore, that government agencies can successfully discipline these few "bad apples".In other cases, disciplinary action is necessary to hold essentially good employees accountable for misconduct that threatens agency operations. In these cases, making discipline stick is actually in the interest of the employee, as it can serve as a much needed "wake up call" to an employee before performance issues become so serious that termination is required or public safety is threatened.Unfortunately, research has revealed that when disciplinary actions are reviewed by an outside source (i.e., grievance arbitrator or civil service board), the employer's discipline is overturned or reduced about half of the time. This course covers the findings of a DCG study of hundreds of public employee discipline cases that went to arbitration review. This course reveals the five most common reasons arbitrators give for overturning a public agency's employee discipline. This information is utilized to provide practical steps public employers can take to ensure fairness in their disciplinary processes and significantly increase the likelihood their disciplinary decisions are upheld.This course is designed for anyone responsible for investigating or disciplining employee misconduct within a government
