Community Protection Issues Series: first class 9/18

Community Protection Issues Series Fall 2012

Emergency Management Office; first class this Tuesday, 9/18

Participation in these classes is encouraged, but not mandatory. This series, now in its third year, is provided as a service of the Emergency Management Office to bring awareness of behavioral issues or events that can occur on a University campus and offer appropriate responses to such events. Employees who would like to attend any training should discuss with, and obtain the permission of, their supervisor.  It is expected that all University Departments will remain open and participation does not relieve students or any employees of their primary obligation to attend class or sustain University operations.

Behaviors of Concern. Have you wondered whether or not you should report someone’s behavior? You’re concerned, but what to do?  This class is intended for you. “Violence is evolutionary with sign posts along the way. Identifying and addressing behaviors of concern early is the best way to prevent violence on campus (Center for Personal Protection and Safety, 2009). This program focuses on awareness and action as preventative of violence on campus. Faculty, staff and students are welcome.

Shots Fired. “Today, anyone can become a victim of an Active Shooter, but despite common belief, injury or death does not have to be the inevitable outcome. You can survive” (Center for Personal Protection and Safety, 2009). This program focuses on developing a survival mindset. Faculty, staff and students are welcome.

Suicide Intervention. This course focuses on suicide intervention but does touch on aspects of prevention and post-vention. Faculty, staff and students are welcome.

Each class is a stand-alone session. There is no need to enroll or RSVP; just show up.
