PACE is sponsoring a series of Regional trainings focusing on the current hot topic of threat assessment within our schools, community colleges and communities.

 Community College focused training August 27-28, 2018

Day 1 - Title: Behavioral Threat Assessment Training for safer campuses and communities
August 27, 2018 we’ll cover such topics as best practices, core concepts, assessment, management, case examples, team formation, investigations and information gathering and threat assessment resources. The reality of the world we live in is business and community leaders need to be aware of individuals who exhibit warning behaviors of violence and know how to respond with the knowledge and strategy to stabilize and prevent violence.

This workshop will be facilitated by:
