You’ve seen the headlines and heard the stories. Unfortunately, tragedies are occurring every day, some right here in our own backyard. Often, the best approach to preventing tragedy is preparedness. Since 90% of solving a problem is preventing it in the first place, being proactive in potentially dangerous situations is of utmost importance. In this session, Joel Vettel, a lieutenant with the Fargo Police Department, will give attendees tangible tips to be safe in any situation and be able to spot warning signs that something might be wrong before things take a turn for the worse.

Learn the little things you can do every day to empower people to keep themselves and others safe. Vettel will instruct how to address aggressive behavior, spot red flags and learn techniques to de-escalate volatile situations. While the presentation focuses on workplace situations, these lessons can be applied in any setting.

Vettel received a bachelor of science degree from NDSU and a master’s degree from the University of Mary. He is a 2009 graduate of Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety and a 2013 Graduate of the FBI National Academy. Vettel lectures extensively on the issue of personal safety, workplace violence and dealing with aggressive people.
