K-12 Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management Train-the-Trainer Program

To provide ongoing assistance and resources to threat assessment teams, the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to provide the following opportunities for K-12 threat assessment teams to access more training. DCJS is offering a Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management (BTAM) Train-the-Trainer (TTT) Program.
