"The ability to manage a critical incident through the Web was crucial," continued Spivey "Our clients look to us in the area of training, incident prevention, and active shooter response. Because NaviGate is online platform, there is a perfect synergy between the training that we do and the technology that we offer."

Additionally, the CPPS has created a suite of online training video programs to assist organizations to train their employees to be safe in the workplace and while traveling abroad.
