The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to announce the 2021 National Threat Assessment Conference for Educational Institutions. The conference will be offered October 12-14, 2021 in both Virtual and In-Person formats.
The in-person event will be held in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Virtual attendees may join the event from anywhere with an internet or data connection - by phone or computer. Those who attend in person will also have access to all of the digital content.
With over a decade of implementing threat assessment teams in institutions of higher education and K-12 public schools, DCJS has had the opportunity to join with subject matter experts to learn what works based on research and best practices. The successes and lessons learned in this area have led to a continued search for opportunities for improvement, to share resources, and to pursue better outcomes for the safety of all students, staff, stakeholders, and ultimately for the community.
