Leadership & Expertise

At Trident Shield, our mission is to SAVE LIVES. We do this by providing workplace violence and active shooter training for organizations of any size nationwide. Our comprehensive programs help to foster a culture of care while reducing security risks and safeguarding your greatest asset – your employees.

But more importantly, we teach your people how to respond when workplace violence or an active shooter occurs at your organization. And presence of mind, along with swift action, could spell the difference between lives lost and lives saved.

Founded in 2013, Trident Shield brings over 100 years of high-level and real-world experience to help organizations maximize their preparedness for potential critical events. Over the years, we’ve established a solid client base. Our trainers work with big and small organizations as well as private individuals.

Industry Thought-Leaders

At Trident Shield, we take a holistic approach to workplace violence training. Ultimately, the productivity and success of your team is dependent on their well-being beyond the work day. Our WorkLife Safety programs teach skills that will be with your team at work, at home, and throughout their daily lives.

Workplace violence can be a difficult subject. We specialize in reaching out to people of all backgrounds and learning styles. Our goal when training any group is to present the most effective training available, while remaining compassionate and relatable, and maintaining your organization’s culture
