Social Media and Threat Assessment for Violence Prevention
Join us Thursday, November 14th at 1pm Central
Social media continues to impact school safety, culture and climate of our schools. Digital Threat Assessment was developed through the need to keep pace with the ever-evolving technology challenges that face our students currently. These challenges have entered the education domain with force and have overwhelmed school district staff throughout the world. The goal of this webinar is to give attendees a stronger understanding of the current social media world, tools to be able to proactively identify student safety concerns, and provide strategies for dealing with online situations as they arise. All aspects of school safety and threats to schools now involve a social media or online component to be prepared for.
In this webinar you will learn:
Practical tips for using social media for public safety & emergency management (i.e. school lockdown, bomb threat)
How to capture and document open source social media for data collection & information gathering purposes
Digital footprint’s role in risk assessment for violence potential
Procedural recommendations for Law Enforcement and School Administration (i.e. evidentiary requirements, prevention orders)
An understanding of current social media platforms and associated risks
