A Response Plan

First, be on the lookout for the abuser. Who do you want to be responsible for this crucial task? The security guard or other individuals responsible for providing protection must be told to keep an eye out for the perpetrator. Security personnel should have the training and experience to know how to stay observant and aware of suspicious activity. Unfortunately some employers forget this; their “lookout” is a receptionist who has other duties besides monitoring the entrance or the parking lot. In many organizations, the receptionist must answer phones, direct visitors and clients, and provide other administrative assistance. Assign someone else to do only this lookout task, and have a back-up should the first person be out.
