Training Description
The 21st Century has brought with it a new sense of urgency to keep our children and schools safe. The recent deaths of students in Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut at the hands of outside offenders highlights that students are not the only threat sources and the need exists to protect our schools from outsiders with unique and dangerous agendas. There are new dimensions of threat for school personnel, mental health, legal, and school police and security professionals to consider. This training will provide attendees with an overview of cutting-edge information about school-based threat assessment, violence prevention and intervention strategies. It will assist in understanding the unique assessment, management, criminal, and civil legal issues associated with these cases and how to reduce one’s liability in the process. Participants will gain practical ideas that can be applied to their own practice. NOTE: This training was filmed in front of a live audience at an event organized by Specialized Training Services.
