VTRA identifies individuals and groups who are moving toward committing serious violence. It decreases the number of community threats and the level of violence.

When a suspect is at-risk of committing a serious act of violence, VTRA trainers teach multi-stakeholder teams how to gather appropriate information and to build data-driven assessments. The VTRA framework comprises two parts:

We train the multiple stakeholder team to use VTRA. This usually comprises around 80 people per training. These hands-on sessions are very practical, using real world examples and actual case studies. The end result is a team with a shared vision for success and who can consistently use common language, concepts and take unified actions.

We provide ongoing support to make sure that VTRA is being used properly and to its fullest capacity. VTRA is a practical approach to building teams who can monitor, assess and intervene to prevent violence within a community. It teaches behavioral analysis, threat assessment and provides a foundation for intervention around high-risk individuals. VTRA processes are applied to meet the needs of entire communities, individual school districts, colleges and universities, workplaces, corporations, Veteran’s Affairs, government departments and law enforcement.
