Security expert tells how to keep your family safe in restaurants, malls, and movie theaters

Army Colonel Robert Sholly, (ret)

Houston, TX, December 16 - Terrorist attacks in such places as offices, concert venues and stadiums in the U.S. and internationally have made it clear that no one's personal safety is guaranteed. While we cannot live in fear, it is wise to live with caution and prudence, says Robert H. Sholly, a retired army colonel who is experienced in both counter-terrorism and performing security assessments for companies internationally.

Having lived or worked in Iran, Jordan, Jerusalem, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, the West Bank and Gaza, Sholly believes that just as families need an escape plan for fires, they also need an escape plan for terror incidents before they occur.

A sought-after radio guest, Sholly can detail how to keep your family safer in movie theaters, malls, restaurants and other public places, particularly during the holidays. 

He can share:

  • Why you should think twice before visiting crowded public spaces during the holidays.
  • What to think about the next time you visit a mall and why you need a security plan before you enter one.
  • The best thing you can do when shots are fired in a crowded movie theater you are in.
  • Two physical signs to watch for that could identify a potential shooter on public transportation.
  • Specific steps you can take to improve the security of your home or workplace.
