In this one-day class you will learn how to evaluate threats and prevent active shooter incidents and other targeted violence in schools. Threat assessment is recognized as the current best practice for preventing school-based violence, as well as workplace violence and campus violence. SIGMA's experts will teach participants how to use threat assessment procedures to investigate threats and other disturbing behavior in schools, follow step-by-step procedures to assess the threat, and - where necessary - develop and implement plans to reduce risk and help maintain school safety. The class includes multiple tabletop exercises where participants can learn, practice, and hone their use of school threat assessment procedures.
Target Audience: The class is appropriate for school personnel, school security professionals, law enforcement professionals, emergency management professionals, mental health professionals, and anyone else who may be involved in addressing threatening behavior.
