Presented by:
Steve Crimando, MA, CHPP, CTM

Managing Director, Behavioral Science Applications LLC
Safety, security, and business continuity professionals, as well as emergency management leaders and responders of all types benefit from a knowledge and understanding of the causes, warning signs and behavioral dynamics of groups, crowds and mobs that are associated with violent and destructive behavior. Such an understanding better prepares responders for the new challenges associated with the use of social media (Twitter, Face Book, etc.) and globalization as they relate to the development of crisis situations and the potential of dangerous and violent collective behavior. Civil unrest in surrounding communities can also be highly disruptive to all types of business operations and pose a risk to employers and employees alike. This updated 60-minute program provides timely, actionable information to better protect their organizations’ personnel and assets that deployed to a potential group, crowd or mob situation.

Program Highlights:
• Types, scope and prevalence of collective violence
• Defining and distinguishing between groups, crowds and mobs
• The psychology of crowds
• The physics of crowds
• Identifying “flashpoints”
• Effective countermeasures and crowd management strategies
• Business Continuity and Facility Security concerns and countermeasures
• Personal and team safety in crowds and mobs
• Last-chance survival tactics in violent mob situations

In a blow to personal privacy and legal protection from self-incrimination, New Jersey’s highest court has ruled that people do not have a Fifth Amendment right to refuse to give phone passcodes to police.

Perhaps more disturbing is the rationale that the court used to reach this decision, which was that it was a “foregone conclusion” that the government already had access to any data that might be on the phone.
