Civil unrest can be defined as an act of protest in a public space that escalates into a disturbance or interruption to peace and order. Civil unrest events can involve large amounts of people, and in some cases, include violence leading to bodily injury or property damage. It is important to recognize that not all gatherings of people lead to civil unrest events.
However, what starts as a peaceful gathering can escalate quickly depending on a variety of factors. While you may not be able to prevent a civil unrest event from occurring, you can mitigate the impact of the event on your business by being prepared and making a plan.
