Colorado School Safety Resource Center to hold school threat assessment symposium

The Colorado School Safety Resource Center is hosting a one-day threat assessment symposium for schools on Feb. 5, inviting interested parties to take a deep-dive look into critical threats facing schools today.

The symposium will take place in the conference center at Adams 12 Five Star School in Thornton, and will focus primarily on issues surrounding school shooters and dgital threats.

The morning workshop will feature a presentation by Dr. Peter Langman, author of the books “School Shooters: Understanding High School, College and Adult Perpetrators,” and “Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters.” Langman will provide inside into the psychology of school shooters, and how school personnel can assess and address potential threats.

The afternoon workshop will include a presentation by Sam Jingfors, vice president of Safer Schools Together and developer of the Ditital Threat Assessment. The program was developed in response to evolving technological challenges faced by students in the realm of social media, and Jingfors will help attendees address student safety concerns and provide strategies for dealing with online situations.

The symposium runs from 7:45 a.m. through 3:30 p.m., and cost $50 per person. For more information contact the Colorado School Safety Resource Center at 303-239-4435.
