School Violence Threat Assessment Team training

 

The School Violence Threat Assessment Team course is for school administrators, counselors, security personnel and SRO/ERO's. This course will explain who should be part of the threat assessment team, the intent behind threat assessment tools such as the Violence Risk Assessment, how to assess the risk level associated with a threat, and how to determine the appropriate response to a specific threat. Attendees will complete table top exercises and evaluate their own policies. Attendees are encouraged to bring the threat assessment tool used in their school district and their school district's policy regarding threats of violence to the training. This is an eight hour course delivered by school administrators and law enforcement officers. Attendance is restricted to school employees and law enforcement officers.
