VIOLENCE THREAT RISK ASSESSMENT
(VTRA)


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:

TRAINING:
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.

OPERATIONAL SUPPORT:
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.
