We're here to answer any questions you might have.
There are four key ingredients for a successful threat assessment program within your organization:
As mentioned by our partner, Work Trauma Services Inc., the threat of targeted violence in the workplace is complex but comprehensible. Workplace perpetrators are current or former co-workers, domestic or intimate partners of employees, acquaintances, clients, patients, or other individuals outside the workplace who most often have some actual relationship or acquaintance with someone inside the organization. And, due to the detectable pathway to violence (violent intent), behaviors and actions of these perpetrators can be varied, subtle and progressive, prior to actual violent activity (like a shooting, for example).
A school campus has many similarities with large corporate workforces, but where they diverge is an important factor in understanding targeted violence. According to WTS, the sheer volumes of related crimes among a student population (but not necessarily those with fatal consequences) have eclipsed the rates seen in the workplace – with the large majority of those involving stalking. For a campus environment, a threat assessment may include a face-to-face clinical interview with suspicious individuals (students, faculty, or staff), as well as recommendations for improved safety based on information collected and tailored to the institution.
The software is not there to make decisions for you for specific situations. Only professional assessment techniques and properly trained case management team members can effectively mitigate individual potential threat. However, as a tool for offering efficiencies in prioritizing and performing assessment activities, securing sensitive clinical data, and thorough case documentation to back up key decisions, our Threat Assessment app will make a significant impact over using a paper-based approach only. Plus, with the ability to aggregate incidents, behaviors, and outcomes across an entire organization, you will have more insights into preventative measures as part of an overall workplace violence prevention program.
