Active Intruder (Shooter)

Active Intruder (Shooter) events have very little chance of happening in our workplaces, however it is important for workers and their employers to be prepared in case they do occur. On October 15, 1992, an active intruder entered the Schuyler County Office Building and fatally shot four public employees over child support payments that were being garnered from his wages.  The risk factor of being in a position of authority or a perceived position of authority over the public is a known risk factor for workplace violence.  Because of this incident and others across the country, New York State Public Employers must have workplace violence prevention and emergency preparedness programs in place.
