Jury award in plant shooting emphasizes the need for proper security controls

The over 40 million dollar award would exceed most guard company insurance and put them in bankruptcy. In the case it was pointed out that the supervisor of the guard company was shown on video running and hiding, not warning people. This shooting in Kansas last night needs to be watched for how the civil case action will play out. A lot will rest with what actions regarding active shooter training and planning was in place. One place to start is with reviewing what training your security guards have received, and what your contract with them says they should have. Having at least one supervisor on duty at all times taking the FEMA online active shooter certified course is a good start. Having all supervisors listed as on the job trainers, would be the next step. But you need to start now today before your clients have an incident.
