Pre-Incident Prevention – Critically Missing and Critically Needed

Pre-Incident Prevention is accomplished by utilizing the pre-incident indicators that are almost always available (and always talked about after an incident) as well as sources and resources that are almost always available to proactively intervene, disrupt, and prevent incidents and tragedies (shootings, school violence, workplace violence, community violence, suicides, sexual abuse, human trafficking, etc.) BEFORE the incident/attack occurs.
