A focus of the WVPI's symposium which will be held shortly before the 20th anniversary of the April 20, 1999 Columbine mass shooting/bombing will be school and workplace violence prevention.
Columbine ushered in the modern American active school shooter/bomber era, leading to the murders and attempted murders of countless students, faculty and staff over the past two decades.
Columbine inspired countless school and workplace related violence over the past two decades.
The FBI advises mass shooters research prior events before carrying out their own hits. In addition to school shooters, numerous workplace killers were inspired by Columbine. One such killer who was greatly inspired by Columbine was the June 2017 Weis Market murderer who killed three co-workers before committing suicide in the workplace.
Thus Columbine's vicious footprints impacts safety for employees of all organizations, not just schools. Red flags and proactive strategies will be addressed at the symposium.
Prevention is the only solution.
