Every Threat Assessment is unique to your school, religious institution or business. A direct action threat assessment includes all threats specific to your community.

We spend many more hours on each assessment than most companies and law enforcement agencies, at no additonal cost because it is the right thing to do.

We work with your staff to ensure that you develope safe, productive environments.

Legal action/court resolution

At Direct Action Inc., we consider ugly legal battles to be another form of violence so we have developed a unique system to minimize the physical and emotional cost to ALL parties in many types of legal actions.

We work direclty with ALL parties to minimize threat to you, legal expenses, and to provide your attorney with the necessay information and strategy to minimize costs and create a rapid, postive outcome.




Direct Action inc. is a culmination of years of experience, tremendous effort, absolute awareness and at times the sadness of unbearable human compassion that I have experienced over the years while working in the United States, Central and Northern Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

I have spent the last 35 years in the trenches.  In intellgence, as a United States Navy SEAL, as an investigator, an instructor to the military, in developing and implementing threat assessment plans, and as a mentor and trainer for men

and women in real world violence prevention and response.

I absolutely love what I do and I live to help others create safety in thier own environment.  I have been fortunate enough to work with business', temples, synagogues, JCC's, ECC's, churches, schools both religious and non-religious plus families around the U.S. and the world.

I look forward to helping you and your community create a safer, community focused place of worship, education or business.
