Mastering "Left of Bang!" How to solve the Violence "Prevention" issue with Scientific Reliability in just 4-days!

Hi, my name is Dr. John Byrnes, I’m the Founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management.  I realize that you are on this landing page because you are looking for a better solution to the issue of preventing violence in a reliable way.  But how?

Did you know that almost all Security Practices are “Right of Bang?”  It’s true! Why is this so important to understand?

 
  • When an assailant decides to pull his weapon and start shooting -- the "Moment of Commitment" -- it takes two seconds before the first round is discharged. No security professional, no matter how well trained or equipped, can reliably be on scene in just two seconds.
 
  • Sadly, all a security professional can do at that point is follow active shooter training and step over dead, dying and/or wounded victims to get to the shooter.  Have you ever responded to an active shooter? Were you forced to step over the dead, dying and/or wounded victims? What did you say to those who were injured; or those with post-traumatic stress disorder; and the families of those who lost their lives? Is this an acceptable outcome?
 
  • There is a better solution!  This solution is founded in science, but it is not for every security professional!  You must step beyond current thinking/paradigms. Can you step out of your current paradigms and consider a new approach that is founded in science? Ref: Dr. Claire Good, Ph.D (below)
 
  • If you truly wish to prevent assaultive or violent behavior, you must know the behavioral cues (precursors) that lead to assaultive/violent behavior and what to do to stop them. You must get out in front of that horrific Moment of Commitment!

If you agree with me, join us for our Free Introduction to our scientifically reliable Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and our fully functional CAPS Mobile app. We will explain how you can prevent that costly  "Moment of Commitment" and thus prevent violence in the first place.  You prevent a victim from becoming a victim and a perpetrator from becoming a perpetrator! Is there any better solution?  Follow this link to register for our next Free Introduction to CAPS.  If you need to read more, please continue reading . . .
 
  • Using techniques that the FBI and the Secret Service refer to as "identifying someone on the path to violence," the scientifically reliable Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its fully functional CAPS Mobile App help you identify the aggression-precursors to violence and prevent the horrific Moment of Commitment. Plus, this is all accomplished without violating privacy regulations. Although we all know that there is no absolute (100%) violence prevention, with the help of these aggression-precursors there is scientifically reliable violence prevention.

What will the future hold for Corporate Security Executives? We all know that no violence prevention works 100% of the time, but the Center for Aggression Management offers Corporate Security Executives scientifically reliably violence prevention. We also offer solutions for the myriad challenges Corporate Security Executives face on a regular basis:

1.  Convincing the CEO, CFO or Client of Your Value:

While presenting at ASIS International, numerous Directors of Corporate Security said the day they dread most each year was the day they must convince their CEO/CFO or client that the money/budget spent for their services is appropriate. What evidence did they have? No one this year has been murdered! No one has been injured due to workplace aggression/violence! Of course, the evaluations made by CEO/CFOs are far too subjective and too often security budgets are subsequently cut. We can help you demonstrate with evidence-based quantifiable results why your company or client should invest in your services.

2.  Departmental Silos Make You Vulnerable:

Directors of security consistently tell me, “John, human resources, mental health, social services and those who handle conduct do not understand and respect ‘threat’ well enough. So, I don’t share everything we have with them.” Then, when I speak with the directors of human resources, mental health, social services, they tell me, “John, we are concerned that security can get too heavy-handed, so we don’t share everything that we have with them.” These departmental silos create gaps that aggressors simply walk though. Our Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) offers a common language, a common denominator, so that all departments will be on the same page, working as one cohesive multidisciplinary team.


Come learn about how and why our Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) works. Register for our next free one-hour CAPS webinar!


The Solution: The Future for Corporate Security

Although there is no absolute (100%) violence prevention; we can get out in front of and reliably prevent violence! But how? The FBI and Secret Service have for years suggested the most reliable way of preventing a future shooting is by “identifying someone on the path to violence.” 

The future for Security Professionals will be with those who are able to “reliably” identify individuals “on the path” and prevent violence from occurring, in a way that:

1.     Does not violate HIPAA, FERPA or the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

2.     Demonstrates its value to management by producing real-time Evidence-based Best Practices.

The solution for corporate security executives can be found in CAPS. It provides evidence-based best practices that can win over a CEO/CFO. It creates a common language so that all departments for the first time can understand and trust each other’s judgment. CAPS connects the responsibilities of human resources with security blending the two disciplines in a harmonious way.


Link to CAPS Solution for Corporate Security Executives

The Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) has three components that distinguish it from all other systems: Aggression First Observers’ Training, Certified Aggression Managers’ Training and the CAPS’s Meter of Emerging Aggression (MEA) Mobile Software Service. Because we cannot train all people with all skills, the Center for Aggression Management trains Aggression First Observers using our scientifically validated MEA to observe “objective measurable observables” and report. Next, we train a small core group of Certified Aggression Managers (creating scalability) to observe and engage. Finally, we put in place the CAPS Mobile Software Service, which is built upon CAPS’s Meter of Emerging Aggression (MEA). MEA uses no culture, gender, education, age, sexual orientation or mental illness in its assessment. The MEA measures only aggressive behavior and assesses this behavior on a scientifically validated scale of aggression. The FBI and Secret Service refer to this as “identifying someone on the path to violence.” Thus, CAPS does not violate HIPAA or the Civil Rights Act of 1964, or FERPA in our Schools. For CFOs, CAPS provides a clear return on investment. There is a verifiable direct cost relationship between inappropriate aggressive behavior in the workplace. Aggressive behavior results in employee friction, overtime costs, workers’ compensation costs, employee tardiness and absenteeism. The loss to productivity in terms of hard costs can be identified and measured in a survey prior to and following any CAPS implementation. These hard costs can be measured and illustrated in the language CFOs understand best: as a tangible return on investment. During the CAPS utility period aggressive behavior is tracked over time. From the CAPS baseline through Stage 9, we do not expect to have aggressors from the highest threat levels. We expect to get a lot of Stage 3, 4, and 5 aggressors. Logically, when we diffuse a Stage 5 aggressor, we also are preventing any subsequent aggression and/or violence from this individual. At the annual renewal of CAPS, we can demonstrate that your security department has created an environment that is “as safe as possible” utilizing the highest form of evidence-based best practices that both your CEO and CFO will find compelling.


Departmental Silos Solution and Getting Human Resource to Work with You.

Because human resources, mental health and security professionals are all using the same language, it enables greater interdepartmental understanding and cooperation. Trained on the Meter of Emerging Aggression security professionals will see that human resource professionals will connect lower staged aggression (issues like loss of trust, teamwork, leadership and loyalty) with more lethal forms of aggression (assaultive and violent behavior), thus they will understand and respect threat. While human resources professionals will see that security professionals are not heavy handed, but instead are responding in measured ways based upon CAPS protocol. For the first time you will have a truly multi-discipline team protecting your facilities. CAPS evaluates threats solely on the basis of aggressive behavior. This makes it much easier to prevent violent behavior without violating HIPAA, FERPA or the Civil Rights Act of 1964. CAPS also provides an Aggression Continuum that identifies aggressive behavior from its outset through and including the most lethal of all aggressors (Stage 9), the perpetrator of murder/suicide. CAPS and its Mobile Software Service provide the cooperative platform between security, risk management and human resources that permit all professionals to see and understand in real time the behavior of an aggressor, and what actions, if any, should be taken. It records and tracks this behavior to its appropriate conclusion, producing the highest form of evidence-based best practices.


To learn more about caps training for your organization / institution to prevent next mass shooting.

Did you know that almost all Protective Services Executives are “Right of Bang?”  (i.e., becoming involved after “Bang” has already occurred). It’s true! Why is this so important to understand?

  • Too often Protective Services Executives are “Right of Bang!” Did you know that from 15-feet an assailant/assassin has an 82% chance of killing your executive!1
 
  • Did you know that 81% of all attacks in the US have been at less than 25-feet from their victim (your executive)!
 
  • When an assailant/assassin decides to pull his weapon and start shooting -- the "Moment of Commitment" -- it takes just two seconds before the first round is discharged. No Protective Services Executive, no matter how well trained or equipped, can within 2 seconds “reliably” close the required distance (gap) to “zero feet” and mentally be in the “now” so as to prevent an assassination.3
 
  • Is this an acceptable outcome?
 
  • If an assailant is identified, Protective Services Executives can only take two actions:
  • Conduct a takedown, which can create a possible claim of "excessive force!"
 
  • Do nothing!
 
  • ​​​Executives do not like "takedowns!" Not when everyone has a video camera built into their phones, and within seconds images of this takedown will be on Facebook, and within minutes it will be in editing for the nightly news.

If you agree with me, join us for our Free Introduction to our scientifically reliable Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and our fully functional CAPS Mobile app. We will explain how you can prevent that costly  "Moment of Commitment" and thus prevent an assasination attemp in the first place.  You prevent a victim (Executives) from becoming a victim and a perpetrator from becoming a perpetrator! Is there any better solution?  Follow this link to register for our next Free Introduction to CAPS.  If you need to read more, please continue reading . . .
 
  • Are you tired of scanning individuals in a crowd using subjective references and/or pure instinct to determine who is a potential assailant? Would you rather use objective measurable observables?
 
  • Are you also responsible for preventing assaultive/violent behavior in your workplace or school?
 
  • Are you struggling to get others, including leaders, to recognize your value as an executive protector?
 
  • Are you concerned that you are only able to react to an assailant/assassin after the “Bang” has already occurred? Would you rather prevent it before it occurs?  
 
  • There is a better solution!  This solution is founded in science, but it is not for everyone!  You must step beyond current thinking/paradigms. Can you step out of your current paradigms and consider a new approach that is founded in science? Ref: Dr. Claire Good, Ph.D (below)
 
  • If you truly wish to prevent the next assassination attempt, you must know the behavioral cues (precursors) that lead to assassination  (a 9th Stage Cognitive Aggressor) and what to do to mitigate it. You must get out in front of that horrific Moment of Commitment!
 
  • Too often Protective Service Executives are looking for “someone planning or preparing for an attack.” This is too late!  This represents someone at our 7th Stage of Cognitive Aggression.  We have a Baseline and 6 more opportunities to get out in front of and prevent an assassination.
   
  • Using techniques that the FBI and the Secret Service refer to as "identifying someone on the path to violence," the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its CAPS Mobile App help you identify the aggression-precursors to violence and thus prevent the horrific Moment of Commitment. Although we all know that there is no absolute (100%) violence prevention, with the help of these aggression-precursors there is scientifically reliable violence prevention.
 
  • Although you may have little interest in learning how to prevent lower levels of aggressive behavior, such as bullying, there is a good reason that I share them with you! The same aggression-precursors that we use to identify someone on the path to an assassination attack can also help us prevent conflict, bullying, abuse, harassment, loss of trust, and of course, assaultive behavior. Our ability to get well out in front of a potential assassination attack is one of CAPS greatest assets for Protective Services Executives. Only the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) and its CAPS Mobile App offers an unbiased scientifically reliable way to prevent an attack from occurring. Ref: Dr. Claire Good, Ph.D (below)

SUMMARY:
  • The Center for Aggression Management offers scientifically reliable solutions for the most common challenges facing Executive Protective Services Leaders today. We all know that no violence prevention works 100% of the time, but we offer scientifically reliable violence prevention.
 
  • Gavin de Becker in his groundbreaking study/book, “Just 2 Seconds,” demonstrates the need for the Critical Aggression Prevention System (CAPS). de-Becker makes the following points:
 
  • 2Typically, an assailant is 25-feet from his victims when the first round is discharged.
 
  • 1If the Executive Protector is 15-feet from the assailant (next to the executive) there is an 82% chance the executive and his protector (that's you) will be shot and potentially murdered.
 
  • When the Executive Protector is only 7-feet from the assailant, the assailant’s success rate lowers to 55%, but he still has the advantage!
 
  •  3It is only when the Executive Protector is at “zero” feet from the assailant and the protector’s (your) mindset is in the “now” that the attacker’s success rate falls to only 2%. It is seldom that I have heard that executives are prepared to invest in more than a few executive protectors, and all too often it is up to one protector to scan the crowds for potential attackers while carrying bags and other paraphernalia required by the executive. This is why legends in Executive Protection Services like Bob Dugan, Jerry Glazebrook realized that they were significantly more effective when postioned covertly in a crowd!
 
  • From the Moment of Commitment (when an assailant decides to pull his weapon and start shooting) to when the first round is discharged is just 2 seconds! No protector, no matter how well trained or equipped, can reliably identify an attacker in a crowd and effectively close the distances (to zero distance) mentioned above. Legends in Executive Protection are now moving away from their executive, becoming covert in their protection. Because they are covert, Executive Protectors are able to get up next to a potential assailant without being noticed and position themselves should the assailant initiate their horrific Moment of Commitment. With CAPS training Executive Protectors can more reliably identify precursors to their horrific Moment of Commitment and prevent it from occurring.
 
  • Unfortunately, when a threat is identified there are only two options for the Executive Protector:
    1. Do nothing.
    2. Conduct a takedown, which can create a possible claim of "excessive force!"
 
  • Unfortunately, executives do not like takedowns, not when every phone is a video camera, and the news media is just a social media post away.
   
  • This is the reason that Executive Protective Services legends, like Jerry Glazebrook, Bob Duggan of Executive Security International (ESI) hired Dr. John D. Byrnes to train Jerry's team and Bob hired Dr. Byrnes as his Keynote Speaker and to teach part of his courses for several years the significant applications of CAPS. Dr. Byrnes was also the keynote speaker at the first annual Protective Services Conference sponsored by and held at Walmart Headquarters.
 
  • One Senior Security Professional (CPP) told Dr. Byrnes that, although he was almost completely “Right of Bang, Dr. Byrnes had mastered "Left of Bang.”
 
  • Too often Protective Service Executives are looking for “someone planning or preparing for an attack.” This is too late!  This represents someone at our 7th Stage of Cognitive Aggression.  We have a Baseline and 6 more opportunities to get out in front of and prevent an assassination.
 
  • Although many have dedicated themselves to preventing assaultive/violent behavior, in reality, all that most do is try to stop assaultive/violent behavior once they see it in progress. Unfortunately, by the time they notice, severe damage already may have been done. 
 
  • Remember without CAPS, no Executive Protector, no matter how well trained or equipped, can reliably identify an attacker in a crowd and effectively close the distances (gap) to zero distance. If you are unarmed, you are on your own! When law enforcement finally arrives, they are trained to step over the dead, dying and/or wounded victims (that’s you and your executive) to get to the shooter.  This is unacceptable!

The Center for Aggression Management offers scientifically reliable solutions for the most common challenges facing law enforcement executives today. We all know that no violence prevention works 100% of the time, but we offer scientifically reliable violence prevention that law enforcement can count on.

1.  Can Citizens Rely on Law Enforcement to Prevent the Next Mass Shooting?

According to research, from the Moment of Commitment (when a person decides to pull their weapon and start shooting) to the moment when the assailant discharges his first round, just two seconds elapse. Within five seconds victims are dead, dying or wounded. As a law enforcement executive, you know you can have the best, most responsive tactical team trained in the most advanced active shooter skills with all the most advanced equipment; yet too often, the tactical team will arrive stepping over dead citizens or officers who were slain during the horrific first few seconds of an attack. Previously, there was little that could be done without incredible luck, because someone actually did “see something and say something.” Too often for reasons of political correctness (San Bernardino) or that observers simply do not want to get involved, nothing is said, and your officers arrive on the scene too late to prevent injury or death.

2.  Good Cop/Bad Cop:

Chuck Harold, of SecurityGuyRadio.com, a former law enforcement professional, has 51,000 weekly listeners. Approximately half of his listeners are current law enforcement professionals. Chuck says that Chiefs of Police often have a problem with “alpha” males and females within their agencies. They need a means of defining and assessing aggressive behavior, from acceptable friendly trash-talk between officers to potentially threatening language cloaked in trash-talk. Officers are humans too. Once officers learn these definitions and realize the nature and consequences of their statements or actions, they tend to move away from aggressive behavior. For those few who too often exhibit aggressive behavior with citizens or other officers, CAPS makes it far easier to define, identify, measure, monitor, and de-escalate so as to prevent further incidents and/or offer remediation for the officer.

3.  The Pantaleo Effect:

Community trust of local law enforcement is existential to our American society, and unfortunately it has dwindled as of late. Cases like Mr. Eric Garner, who died while being arrested by New York Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in 2014, illustrate the issue. The community has rallied behind the family of Mr. Garner rightly emphasizing that he didn’t deserve to die. The New York Times reports that it was Mr. Garner’s death that galvanized the Black Lives Matter movement. The leader of the city’s largest police union closed ranks with Officer Pantaleo insisting he didnt deserve to lose his job and pension. Neither side seems to trust the other to do the right thing. Twenty-five years of research has demonstrated in the absence of trust behavior becomes increasingly more aggressive. We see this as community members in Harlem and Brooklyn dumped buckets of water on members of the New York Police Department (NYPD). As the Eric Garner case and subsequent spate of NYPD officer soakings seem to show, minority communities are growing more and more distrustful of law enforcement. Buckets of water may not seem very serious, but if law enforcement cant earn the trust of their community, then buckets of water today could become violence tomorrow and seriously undermine the structure of our nations society. Its all part of what I and others are calling the Pantaleo Effect.

4.  Restoring Public Trust to Avoid the Alternative:

As trust is diminished, aggression emerges, which may start with buckets of water and too quickly escalates to expressions of violence (riots and officers being shot). Many police officers are increasingly leery of getting out of their vehicles to solve problem for fear of being blindsided by the very members of the community they strive to protect.

The Solution:

The solution is for law enforcement to implement an unbiased, systematic approach. They must apply the law equally and transparently in a way that the communities they serve can understand and trust. CAPS embodies this solution. It is the only system that is scientifically validated and produces evidence-based best practices for the agencies that use it. CAPS has the ability to demonstrate to any observer, including community oversight committee members and the DOJ, that enforcement decisions were made strictly on the basis of objective, observable behaviors without regard to race, ethnicity or gender. CAPS has three components that distinguish it from other systems: Aggression First Observers’ Training, Certified Aggression Managers’ Training and the CAPS’s Meter of Emerging Aggression (MEA) Mobile Software Service. Because we cannot train all people with all skills, the Center for Aggression Management trains Aggression First Observers using our scientifically validated MEA to observe “objective measurable observables” and report. Next, we train a small core group of Certified Aggression Managers (creating scalability) to observe and engage. Finally, we put in place the CAPS’s MEA Mobile Software Service. MEA uses no culture, gender, education, age, sexual orientation or mental illness in its assessment. The MEA measures only aggressive behavior and assesses this behavior on a scientifically validated scale of aggression. This is what the FBI and Secret Service refer to as “identifying someone on the path to violence.” Thus, CAPS does not violate HIPAA or the Civil Rights Act of 1964, or FERPA in our Schools. We believe that law enforcement trainers should go out into the community (civic centers and churches) and train citizens to become Aggression First Observers. By doing this, minority community citizens can learn that law enforcement officers are using objective, measurable observed behavior, not skin color or ethnicity, and more importantly they have the skills to de-escalate aggressors before things become violent. This could go a long way to develop lost rapport and trust among minority communities. Police officers will receive scientifically validated, objective, measurable observables from citizens trained as Aggression First Observers making their efforts for more reliable, effective and efficient. In working together to solve community issues, trust and respect can be restored. The unique CAPS approach can enhance law enforcement’s ability to reliably prevent violence, and thereby develop a stronger trust relationship with its communities.
