COVID-19 Has Birthed a New Security Risk

COVID-19 has birthed new security risks

As a security professional and experiencing an active shooting event firsthand, I know the emotions and challenges associated with violence in places where people assemble. I don't know about you, but the measures that have been put in place to protect us and those around we interact with during the COVID-19 crisis, pose a new security threat that many have not considered, or seen.

It is important to be aware that there are individuals who have and will continue to use protective coverings such as masks and gloves to hide their identity as they attempt to carry criminal activity, attacks and threats against the innocent and unsuspecting.

In the city in which I live there have been several violent actives committed by individuals using medical masks to cover their face/conceal their identity making it difficult to obtain a facial description.

We must be careful not to judge, or profile those who are wearing masks, or make shift masks using various materials, however we can be aware of aware surroundings and the actions of others that may be "red flags"

When living and working in your zone of travel always be aware of your surroundings and look for anything that may seem out of the ordinary? STAY ALERT FOR THE NEXT POST TO LEARN MORE ON HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ZONE.......
