THOUGHT LEADERSHIP WEBINAR ON AGGRESSION DURING COVID-19
August 4th 2020
Claire Lawrence is delighted to be a panel member for this thought provoking webinar. The period under Covid-19 has witnessed a shift in violence incidents. The distinction between home and work has blurred, but where does this leave the security sector if what was domestic abuse is now violence at work?
On the frontline we are hearing about the patience needed to enforce social distance rules in an ongoing way, and we are hearing about security officers and retail staff facing changing forms of aggression and violence, so how should the security sector react to that?
The webinar will examine:
● The ways in which violence is changing and being understood in a Covid-19 environment
● The specific problems facing the security sector and the clients and stakeholders it serves
● The new ways and approaches that need to be considered by the security sector as it moves to the ‘new normal’.
