Protests: Awareness and Response

by | Nov 6, 2022 | Contingency

In a particularly tense political season, it is helpful to review options for responding to a protest. A few simple steps will keep personnel prepared in the event they come upon a protest or similar activity. Keep the following in mind as you plan and consider your organizational planning and posture:

  • Be aware of the political situation
  • Carry ID or a copy of your ID
  • Know and avoid common protest sites
  • Weekends, particularly Saturday, are a common time for protests
  • Do not attempt to drive or walk through a gathered crowd
  • Be aware of increased police presence
  • Calmly move away from flashpoints where protestors and police may meet
