Post Secondary Campus Threat Assessment Program

Threat mitigation and safety practices have come under increased scrutiny in the wake of high profile shootings and incidents on post-secondary campuses across the nation. Local law enforcement, campus security and other institutional personnel (e.g., student affairs, human resources, building and grounds, mental health, etc.) lead campus efforts to proactively address threats across a range of situations. These professionals routinely encounter threatening, suspicious, and hoax activities that require planned, thoughtful and decisive action.

Nebraska is preparing post-secondary campus personnel by offering planning assistance for campus threat assessment team formation and physical security audits as well as consultation related to team development or problematic cases. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's threat assessment team structure serves as a model for other campuses to adapt for use in the context of their institution.

For more information, to request planning assistance or consultation please contact us.

The project is made possible by funding administered by the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency.
