    Recognizing signs of potential workplace violence

    RECOGNIZING SIGNS OF POTENTIAL WORKPLACE VIOLENCE
    AN ACTIVE SHOOTER MAY BE A CURRENT OR FORMER EMPLOYEE. ALERT YOUR HUMAN RESOURCES
    DEPARTMENT IF YOU BELIEVE AN EMPLOYEE EXHIBITS POTENTIALLY VIOLENT BEHAVIOR.
    INDICATORS OF POTENTIALLY VIOLENT BEHAVIOR MAY INCLUDE ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING:
    • Increased use of alcohol and/or illegal drugs
    • Unexplained increase in absenteeism, and/or vague physical complaints
    • Depression/Withdrawal
    • Increased severe mood swings, and noticeably unstable or emotional responses
    • Increasingly talks of problems at home
    • Increase in unsolicited comments about violence, firearms, and other dangerous weapons and violent crimes
    I was browsing my sheriff's website to see if I could apply for a purchase permit online, found this on there... I thought it was funny because the last point happens often where I work, we all have a passion for firearms and talk about them pretty frequently. We also talk about violent crimes and how they might have been prevented if someone was carrying. I guess in the eyes of the LEO's one of us might just snap and start a shooting spree, so don't talk about firearms or the reality of violance and violant crimes because that means you will probably snap in the future. I guess what bothers me is that they are brainwashing people to be on alert if they hear the word "firearm" "gun" etc. I see what side they are on.

    STAY SAFE & CARRY ON!

    To be fair, if you and your co-workers have an established habit of talking about firearms then random comments about them probably can't be considered unsolicited and so this doesn't apply.

    Well we started somewhere with the firearm talk, we didnt just magically get to the point we are now. So the initial "testing the waters" must have been considered random comments. Guess I'm lucky I didn't get reported, or worked with a bunch of Antis o.O

    Though a couple of my co-workers all ways found it odd that on downtime I was on Budsgunshop.com window shopping but now its a norm.
