ASIS National Capital Chapter
November 2018 Chapter Meeting
Active shooter events are not regular occurrences in the workplace; however, the impacts can be devastating. Our speaker this month will discuss standards and the implementation of Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention Programs that meet OSHA Directives and the ASIS/SHRM National Standard.
Our speaker will be Jake Newton, Vice President of Business Development for the Center for Personal Protection and Safety where he is responsible for CPPS client relationships, marketing, and developing strategic partnerships. Jake also leverages his expertise as an instructor to provide training to CPPS clients.
Jake began his career in 2008 at Whetstone Gulf State Park in New York where he maintained a 2,100-acre park ensuring a safe experience for patrons and campers. Jake transitioned into the U.S. Air Force enlisting as a SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) Specialist, serving honorably through 2014.
During his tenure, Jake was responsible for several components of preparing Military members identified as "High Risk of Isolation" with expertise of how to survive in any environment and know how to be rescued if isolated while conducting operations around the world. Jake’s roles ranged from instructing Combat Survival Training Courses, certifying newly graduated SERE Specialists, overseeing operations in multi-national Combat Search and Rescue Exercises, and holding a key role in the re-write of the Air Force Combat Survival Training Curriculum.
Following his service in the Air Force, Jake earned his bachelor’s through Liberty University focusing on Business, Education, and Health Sciences. Jake is also a graduate of the FBI National Citizens Academy Alumni Association through the Washington Field Office.
