Hope In The Darkness

The 10-Point Threat Assessment Model

By: Dana Picore

On the night of October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock smashed the windows out of his thirty-second-floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel and opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers who were attending a country music festival on the Las Vegas strip. Fifty-eight people were killed, and over 450 were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in United States History. This incident, and so many others like it, demonstrates the significance of having a plan to keep yourself safe in any environment and any situation.

Hope in the Darkness features former LAPD police officer and security expert Dana Picore, Ph.D. and her 10-Point Threat Assessment Model, which will help you identify and evaluate potential security threats in both your workplace and social gatherings. You’ll learn what warning signs to look out for in employees― such as substance abuse, a history of violence, or mental illness―and you’ll understand when to call for professional assistance.

Don’t be passive with the safety in any environment, especially your workplace. By taking action today, you can give your coworkers a secure working environment where they have nothing to fear.
