According to the F.B.I., 70% of all active shooter episodes occur in two places: Businesses and schools.

At the upcoming symposium, the WVPI will offer proactive strategies to help mitigate the growing risk of violence in our workplaces and schools - which are workplaces for teachers and staff.

Three teachers/staff members and 14 students were slaughtered in the latest growing tragedy of rage shootings by students/former students in Parkland on February 14, 2018.
