There is a wonderful article in the Washington Post about how the Holocaust Museum was designed to be both welcoming and secure. The system worked too, despite Mr. John’s murder. That’s what security designs are for: to channel an attacker into an area where they have to choose–either be detected and apprehended or be stopped. The system worked well too. If only there had been vests for the guards. But that’s a post I already wrote.
So, for those of you who are concerned about safety at the office, it can be done. It just takes a little forethought. Shameless plug here: some of my ideas on how to do it are in the recent ABA book I touted a couple of days ago. Go check it out. Then do it NOW.
