STATESBORO — The Statesboro Area Society for Human Resource Management will present a public seminar on “How to Handle Active Shooter and Workplace Violence Scenarios” at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Bulloch County North Main Annex, 113 N. Main St. in Statesboro.

The Bulloch County Board of Commissioners Office will sponsor the lunch. Chief Deputy Jared Akins and Capt. Todd Mashburn of the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office will be the guest presenters.

“Bulloch County is pleased to host the Statesboro Area SHRM meeting,” Bulloch County Manager Tom Couch said. “Unfortunately, we live in a day and time of seemingly random and mass violence. We hope that this training will assist area employers in forming a plan of action for security incident management in their workplaces. While no person or organization can be completely prepared to guard against this type of violence, we are grateful that our county’s first responders are taking proactive steps to educate our employer community.”

“HR professionals should make sure their workplace violence prevention programs are sound and consult with their local law enforcement departments,” said Curtis Woody, president of Statesboro Area SHRM. “Local law enforcement are happy to partner with businesses to keep people safe and can be a big help in training employers on how to avoid workplace violence. All you have to do is ask.”

Tickets for the seminar can be reserved by visiting or on EventBrite at

Statesboro Area SHRM focuses on people management issues and is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management.

The chapter serves Bulloch and its seven contiguous counties.
