Investigative Threat Assessment course teaches a fact-based, systematic process designed to IDENTIFY, INQUIRE, ASSESS, and MANAGE potentially dangerous or violent subjects. A key goal is to distinguish between an individual who MAKES a threat versus one who POSES a threat. This course will prepare threat assessment teams to address and manage any behavior or communication that raises concern that a person may pose a danger to the safety of the school, campus, or workplace.
It is not enough to react only to the threatening message, whether spoken, written, or symbolic. It is also vital to assess whether the person who made the threat has the intent, means, and motivation to carry it out. This course will teach you how to interview a subject of concern and create a plan to successfully manage them and reduce their level of risk.
