Threat Management Team
Threat assessment consists of the process of identifying and responding to individuals who may pose a danger to themselves or others by distinguishing those who may simply be struggling and in need of assistance, and those where behavioral and environmental indicators suggest a real threat.
The mission of this team includes helping the university to appropriately respond to individuals exhibiting behaviors that may pose a threat to the university community. The team consists of officers and detectives that have received additional training in many specialized areas. The team uses a proactive, collaborative and objectively fact-based process to identify and assess individuals exhibiting concerning behavior. This team recommends appropriate responses and intervention strategies to the relevant decision-makers. Whenever possible and appropriate, the team provides follow-up interventions and continued monitoring.
