Outreach & Education

Campus Violence Prevention & Education
Trainings for departments and workgroups are offered by members of the Threat Assessment & Management Team. Sessions offer strategies and skills for dealing with disruptive and angry individuals, an understanding of warning signs, why an attitude of confidence and respect is important, and practical ways to reduce interpersonal tensions. Please contact any member of the Threat Assessment & Management Team.

Trainings for departments or groups are also available through the University of Arizona Police Department, including security assessments, active shooter presentations, and office safety and crime-prevention training. A police officer will discuss preventative strategies, your department lay-out, campus resources, and how to interact with aggressive individuals. Please contact UAPD at 621-8273 for more information.
