It is a sad fact that America is under siege. A surge in the number of active shooters and violent crime means that you need to protect yourself and your business with active shooter insurance from Laurence Taylor Insurance Services.
Why do I need active shooter insurance?
It is no secret that the crime rate is up across the country. The number of active shooters increased 96.8 percent since 2017. Murders and violent crime are up across the country even as property crime is on down.
Active assailant coverage helps business and high risk individuals recover after an incident. From an injured employee to property damage not covered by other means, this coverage is increasingly important.
Groups that Need Active Shooter Insurance

- Businesses in high crime areas
- Police organizations
- City services
- City Servants
- Probation Officers
- Anyone in the line of fire
Despite the tragic toll, gun violence happens. While you may not be able to get this insurance as a soldier in a combat zone, it does cover most essential workers.
Average Cost of Gun-related Violence
Gun violence takes a significant toll beyond the devastating loss of loved ones, employees, friends, and coworkers. While these losses are tragic, there is also the need to move on after an incident.
Costs include medical bills, the need to replace windows and electronics, a loss of attraction and value in property, and loss of business. The Virginia Tech mass shooting cost between $7 and $12 million dollars in 2007 with costs climbing since then.
