About Our Program

In a post 9/11 world, the FBI initiated a program called Tripwire. The mission of the program was to identify concerning behavior in the community that could indicate a looming threat of a terror attack. Using the same concepts, we have developed a program for small businesses designed for the same mission. We use a systematic approach to identify individuals who exhibit threatening or concerning behavior, assess the risk, and provide advice on appropriate interventions, resources, and support to mitigate the risk.
