The goal is to educate the public on
THREATENING OR POTENTIALLY CONCERNING BEHAVIORS
and where to report them –
providing an opportunity for intervention to prevent targeted violence from occurring.
Research has shown that bystanders or third parties can have a significant impact in preventing targeted violence.
This presentation seeks to empower community members to assist in preventing targeted violence, specifically:
- To recognize threats or potentially concerning behaviors,
- To understand what behaviors may be displayed by a person who is on a pathway to violence,
- Learn where to report information of concern, and
- To understand how the information reported will be used to keep our communities safe.
IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
Watch it yourself, and please feel free to spread the word to other individuals and community groups so we can keep the link moving.
