Threat assessment workshops offered

A pair of two-day Student Behavioral Threat Assessment Workshops will be offered in two separate locations next month. The workshops are provided at no cost by the Illinois School and Campus Safety Program.

Presented by Sigma Threat Management Associates, the workshops aim to help participants understand the dynamics of targeted violence and to develop and enhance strategies for early identification, assessment, and intervention with potential dangerous situations.

School administrators, board members, counselors, school resource officers, mental health agencies, and local law enforcement personnel are encouraged to attend.

The first event is scheduled for July 16-17 at Dunlap High School. The second event is set for July 18-19 at Wredling Middle School in St. Charles. Registration is required by July 2. Details and registration information are available at the following links:

The Illinois School and Campus Safety Program provides awareness and preparedness training to enhance organizational capacity to plan for, respond to, and recover from an emergency or disaster. The program is administered by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board Executive Institute at Western Illinois University.
