From Presidential Protection to Campus Security: A Brief History of Threat Assessment in North American Schools and Colleges
Randazzo, Marisa R.; Cameron, J. Kevin
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v26 n4 p277-290 2012
This article provides a brief history of the development of behavioral threat assessment within colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, from the original Secret Service model used to evaluate threats against the U.S. president, to its adaptations for workplace settings and United States and Canadian secondary schools, to its current configuration in U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities. The article reviews the emerging standard of care for higher education institutions with respect to having a campus threat assessment process and includes recommendations for how college mental health professionals can provide vision and expertise to a campus threat assessment team.
