Digital Threat Assessment (DTA)Training

Course Type: 

  • Teacher Workshop

Course Date: 

Friday, April 27, 2018 - 8:30am to 3:30pm


Training for School Administrators, Law Enforcement and Front Line Community Agencies

Digital Threat Assessment was developed through the need to keep pace with the ever-evolving technology challenges that face our students currently. These challenges have entered the education domain with force and have overwhelmed school district staff across the nation. The goal is to give attendees a stronger understanding of the current social media world, tools to be able to proactively identify student safety concerns, along with strategies for dealing with online situations as they arise. All aspects of school safety now involve a social media or online component and we need to be prepared. Successful Violence Threat Risk Assessment can only occur if we have a solid understanding of all data needed to appropriately assess an individuals' potential for violence. It is imperative to understand the tools and methods available to you to identify online threat related behavior.  Much of the day will be spent doing hands-on searching exercises through the most current social media sites and applications. You will need to bring a fully charged Laptop (Macbook, Microsoft Surface, or Google Chromebook) in order to get the most from the hands-on portion of the training. Tablets are not compatible with some aspects of the training and seaching capabilities are restricted with iPads.
