Incidents of targeted violence continue to plague communities across the United States. Since the 2001 September 11th attacks, the US has shifted from a repressive Counter Terrorism approach to one seeking to intervene before arrest, criminal prosecution, and detention become necessary. Many approaches to prevention have been leveraged to reduce harm to communities, with a renewed emphasis placed on behavioral threat assessment. With behavioral threat assessment being used outside of school and law enforcement settings, there is a need to improve understanding of the approach among a broader community of violence prevention practitioners. The National Policing Institute will provide an introduction to behavioral threat assessment and discuss potential opportunities and limitations to this approach.

About the National Policing Institute: Formerly known as the National Police Foundation, the National Policing Institute’s mission is to pursue excellence in policing through innovation and science. It is the oldest nationally-known, non-profit, non-partisan, and non-membership-driven organization dedicated to improving America’s most noble profession – policing.

The National Policing Institute has been on the cutting edge of police innovation for over 50 years since it was established by the Ford Foundation as a result of the President’s Commission on the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society (1967) and the related conclusions of the Kerner and Eisenhower Commissions, taking place during the same era.
