In an effort to proactively reach out to members of our college community and to address inappropriate behavior and events before they escalate, the Community College of Rhode Island has created a Threat Assessment Committee. The Committee is charged with establishing policies and procedures that encourage early action and intervention when necessary to maintain a high-quality and safe learning environment.
The Threat Assessment Committee is comprised of faculty, staff and administrators who gather regularly to review potentially threatening behavior and incident reports. The goal is to recommend early intervention so that individuals get the assistance they need without disruption to the community. In addition to the main committee, each campus has a site team for both the reporting of concerns and, if necessary, the implementation of any appropriate intervention.
It is critical to understand that the Threat Assessment Committee is not a substitute for the college's disciplinary system, campus police or the emergency response team. The goal of threat assessment is to identify situations before those resources are necessary. Any member of the college community who feels they are in physical danger should contact campus police immediately. Only report to the Threat Assessment Committee those incidents that provoke thought and concern, but require no emergency response.
