A Threat Assessment Program is dedicated to the early identification, assessment and management of incidents and behaviors that threaten the safety and well-being of an organization.

Three elements that are essential to an effective threat assessment program are:

  1. Identification of hazards. (things, situations, processes, etc. that may cause harm, particularly to people)
  2. Analyze or evaluate the risk associated with that hazard. (how likely and severe the risk is)
  3. Determine appropriate ways to eliminate or control the hazard. (effectively prevent)

A Threat Assessment Program is designed to provide a mechanism to assure that threats of violence are addressed whenever possible, before acts of violence occur.
