Situational Awareness

What exactly is situational awareness and how does it apply to the work of our frontline professionals? Situational awareness is knowing what is going on around us. As we come out of COVID, it is important that we sharpen our tools, reacquainting ourselves with the Department of Homeland Security’s national campaign, “If you see something, say something.” While this campaign was created to raise public awareness of crimes related to terrorism, it also applies to other suspicious or criminal activities such as active shooters or human trafficking. This session will review the concept of situational awareness as the first step in helping to identify and address crime in our communities.
