Here are two resources that we felt are worth highlighting, for those in the threat assessment field or who work with anyone in threat assessment:
The first is an article in the 2011 issue of the URMIA Journal: “Campus Threat Assessment and Management Teams: What Risk Managers Need to Know Now.” The article covers the emerging standard of care in campus threat assessment, and identifies steps that risk managers can take to make their threat assessment process consistent with the standard of care. While written for campus risk managers, the article is useful for a broader audience. This article was co-authored by Jeff Nolan, Esq., Marisa Randazzo, PhD, and Gene Deisinger, Ph.D.
The second is an article from Police Chief magazine on the role of police psychologists as consultants to law enforcement agencies, including in threat assessment. Gene Deisinger co-wrote this article’s section on threat assessment and management. It offers a great perspective on the various roles that psychologists can play in support of federal, state, and local law enforcement.
