What We Do
Violence is a fact of life. It happens everywhere, and it hurts everyone – emotionally, physically, socially, and economically.
Most organizations have legal duties to deal with violence or the threat of violence, and for some organizations this is one of their core responsibilities. We can help. Our mission is to assist organizations to reduce the harmful effects of violence through effective prevention and intervention.
Protect International is a leading provider of services and products related to violence risk assessment and management, also known as threat assessment and management. We help organizations and professionals to deal with violence risk more effectively, and we also handle cases on their behalf. We prevent violence and repair its harmful effects in a way that respects people’s rights and dignity and is in full compliance with applicable law.
We are a team of Threat Assessment Specialists with diverse backgrounds and experiences in the fields of mental health, public safety, management consulting, and law, supported by committed and talented Administrative Support Specialists. What unites us is our focus on protecting people from the harmful effects of violence and other conflictual behavior through the development, implementation, application, and evaluation of evidence-based risk assessment and management procedures.
“All of our senior staff who have responsibilities for assessing and managing the risk of violence have completed training with Protect International. We have found the training to be excellent and all of our participants have reported an increase in their confidence and skill level when managing students with a history of violence. As an organization we also made significant changes to the way we managed these risks which have greatly increased our rigour of assessment and so the level of safety for our students and staff has increased.”
