Threat Assessment Team

Threat Assessment Team

Lorain County Community College has established a Threat Assessment Team (TAT) to assist in addressing situations where students, faculty or staff are displaying disruptive or threatening behaviors that potentially impede their own or others ability to function successfully or safely. The process is designed to help identify persons whose behaviors potentially endanger their own or the health and safety of others.  For the safety of the campus community any threat, explicit or implied, will be considered a statement of intent. 

A collaborative process to assess threats will be used and depending on the situation, personnel with areas of specialization/responsibility may be called upon to assist the TAT. Other individuals may also be consulted as needed such as a faculty member who has a concern about a student, a counselor to share expertise and /or an administrator/supervisor who has information concerning an employee.

The TAT will meet on an emergency basis as well as monthly to review reports brought forward by campus community members concerning disruptive, inappropriate, and/or threatening behavior.

It is the responsibility of faculty, staff and students to immediately report any situation that could possibly result in harm to anyone at the College. When a member of the campus community becomes aware of a troubling person or situation that is causing serious anxiety, stress or fear this information should be forwarded to the Director of Campus Security or any appropriate College official (instructor, counselor, dean, administrator, etc.) immediately. In cases where a person may pose an immediate risk of violence to self or others, a 911 call should be placed and the Campus Security Office should be contacted immediately at 366-4444 or 366-4053.
