Countering Targeted Violence: Utilizing a Threat Assessment and Management Approach for Identifying and Assessing Potential Concerns – The Iowa Division of Intelligence and Fusion Center (DOI/FC) utilizes a Threat Assessment and Management approach in addressing potential threats of targeted violence. Targeted violence entails premeditated violent acts against a known target with an unspecified timeframe for planning and preparation. Examples of targeted violence include threats to public officials, workplace violence, stalking, assassinations, school shootings, mass shootings, and terrorism.
This presentation will outline the Threat Assessment and Management process in addressing targeted violence, focusing primarily on identifying individuals that may present a concern for engaging in targeted violence. The brief will identify warning behaviors that have been associated broadly with targeted acts of violence, providing an explanation of the key indicators of the behaviors and applying them to an array of past acts of targeted violence.
The Iowa Department of Homeland Security will:
Provide insight into their programs. Critical infrastructure provides essential services to the State and requires proactive and coordinated efforts to ensure that it is secure and able to withstand and rapidly recover from all hazards. As critical infrastructure systems become increasingly interdependent, ensuring their security and resilience becomes more complex. To this end, HSEMD engages closely with our public-private sector and community partners to provide counsel and recommendations about protective measures they can implement to protect facilities and venues. Public- and private-sector critical infrastructure partners are key in our homeland security and emergency management efforts. The more we strengthen our relationships and information-sharing capabilities, the more resilient we make our state.
The Safeguard Iowa Partnership Will:
Coordinate and host the training. We will also provide a training module on emergency plans for businesses. Being prepared before the event occurs will ensure that a business is prepared before these events occur.
