Threat Assessment Team
Tyler’s Threat Assessment Team facilitates a safe college community by addressing reported behavioral issues that occur on a Tyler campus, at an off-site location, or electronically.
Tyler is concerned about the safety, health and well-being of all of its students, faculty and staff. In adherence to Virginia Code 23-9.2:10, Tyler established a Threat Assessment Team (TAT), comprised of representatives of Student Services, Law Enforcement, Security Services, Human Resources and faculty. The team meets on a regular basis under the leadership of the Dean of Students and the Assistant Director of College Safety & Security.
The TAT is charged with addressing all reported behavioral issues that occur on a Tyler campus, at an off-site location, online, or on an electronic site including email, blogs, social media and Canvas postings. Off-campus and electronic, social media or online behavior of students, staff, faculty, individuals, or third parties may be considered and investigated by the TAT in instances where a threat is thought to exist in the college community. The TAT will ensure every referral is addressed.
The mission of the Tyler TAT is to facilitate a safe college community through a coordinated, systemic, collaborative, objective, unbiased, thoughtful, proactive approach with strong emphasis on prevention through identification of the potential threats, assessments of said threats, interventions, management and follow up of any and all situations that pose or are thought to pose potential threats to the safety and well-being of individuals on campus as well as to the college community.
