If you are interested in understanding how and why people become fixated, stalk and attack people in public life, this is a must listen to podcast!

Reid Meloy is in my humble opinion The Godfather of #threatintelligence & #threatassessment with regards to the warning behaviours and understanding of how and why people become fixated, stalk and attack.

In this episode of The Online Bodyguard Podcast, he shares his expertise on how to assess persons of concern who may pose a threat to public and prominent figures. He discusses his extensive case history and expertise of proximal warning behaviours, communicated threats, mental illness in attackers, how they plan, escalate and appropriate interventions. Dr Meloy shares his thoughts of the future of the threat assessment industry, how to identify a professional organisation and finally shares some of his top tips for staying safe.
