What happens after a report is made?
Once a report is being managed by Threat Assessment and Management, a preliminary assessment is conducted. The preliminary assessment consists of reviewing the information provided in the report and may include gathering additional information to assist with understanding the totality of the situation.
If a preliminary assessment concludes there is no reason to believe a potential, imminent or actual threat or violent behavior may exist, the case will be closed.
If a preliminary assessment concludes there is reason to believe a potential, imminent or actual threat or violent behavior may exist, the information gathered during the preliminary assessment is used to create an individualized threat assessment and management plan. The goal of the threat assessment and management plan is to promote the continued safety of the individuals involved, and promote a safe educational environment for students and work environment for employees.
