In June, UT Police at Houston presented to The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACALEA) annual conference during two workshops. The first workshop informed the audience on using crowdsourcing as an approach to critical incident response. The second workshop taught audiences on how they can improve threat disruption by implementing incremental small improvements to their threat management process while undertaking a wide range systems model thinking with their organization.
Threat Assessment: Violence Prevention Via Intervention, was presented by Associate Vice President, Chief of Police and Chief Security Officer William Adcox and Assistant Chief of Police Vicki King. Adcox and King introduced basic threat assessment principles, concepts, and terms and provided an overview of the structure of the Threat Management Unit and Behavioral Intervention Team.
A Crowd Sourced Approach to Critical Incident Response, was presented by Chief Adcox and Executive Director and Deputy Chief Security Officer Ray Gerwitz. Adcox and Gerwitz discussed how engaging the community serves as a force multiplier for campus safety by creating a crowd sourced prevention and response model prior to, during and after a critical incident.
The IACALEA annual conference is the premier meeting for campus public safety leaders. The Conference features a variety of educational workshops and plenary sessions for the campus public safety community.
