Why would a person bring a weapon to school or their place of work and without any explicable reason open fire on fellow students and co-workers? Are active shooters angry? Are they crazy? How do we know if a threat is serious? If we have a serious threat, what do we do next? how do we manage the subject of concern?
This course will teach you a methodical procedure for evaluating a threat and the person who made the threat, with the goal of reaching an informed judgment on the subject of concern’s level of risk.
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 and subject of concern and how to create a plan to successfully manage them and reduce their level of risk.
