The Threat Assessment Alert Team (TAAT) is dedicated to a proactive, coordinated and planned identification, prevention, assessment, management, and reduction of interpersonal and behavioral threats to the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and visitors of Roxbury Community College.
Threat assessment is designed to be a preventative process used to identify warning signs and intervene before something preventable happens. Cases are NOT managed on a first-come, first served basis. Rather, all cases are triaged and the most serious cases are managed first. All cases, regardless of the immediacy, will be reviewed and managed in the manner most appropriate for the situation.
In the event of an imminent or significant threat posed, the matter should be immediately referred to the College’s Office of Public Safety and/or the Boston Police Department. This document outlines the process the team will follow upon receiving a referral for threatening, problematic, or concerning student behavior.
The College has a commitment to ensure that no retaliatory actions are taken against any person or persons who submit a referral form to the team.
