Laurence Barton, LLC
Dr. Larry Barton is considered the most knowledgeable and respected authority in workplace violence prevention and mitigation. For 16 years he has worked closely with The FBI Academy in training law enforcement on new dynamics in threat assessment and he works with leading retailers on safety efforts in stores, DC’s and in the supply chain. He has managed over 3300 cases of stalking, suicidal ideation, disruptive behavior, threats and acts of violence and social unrest. His newest book, The Violent Person @ Work, focuses on the duty of care that retailers and others must enact when a person’s behavior, social networking posts or other factors emerge, including hot buttons such as Covid, hate speech and obsession with weapons. Larry is on call 24/7 to many of the world’s leading retailers and has created over 140 training programs for retailers to help employees at all levels unlock how they can be more situationally aware and engaged. He also focuses on failures by retailers to enact their own policies or effectively benchmark their peers on behavioral interview techniques and engagement of law enforcement, EAP programs and others- this program will outline these and other topics and will be permanently available to participants as a tool you may utilize without further licensing, saving you considerable cost by leveraging this subject matter expert.
