Dr. Gene Deisinger, Co-Managing Partner of Sigma TMA, received the Chris Hatcher Award for Visionary Presentation during the 2013 Conference of the Society for Police and Criminal Psychology. Dr. Deisinger’s topic was “Best Practices for Threat Assessment and Management,” which outlined an integrated, operational, approach for threat assessment and management that has been utilized in a variety of settings to support the safety and security of protected parties.

Dr. Hatcher, for whom the award was named, was one of the first to recognize the importance of understanding workplace violence and develop methods of threat assessment. He tried to develop a method of identifying and assessing threats before violence occurred because he recognized the damage not only came from the violence itself but also from the mental stress created by the fear of threats of violence.
