Be Educated and Empowered to Prevent Acts of Violence- No Charge Event on February 13 and 14, 2024

Please note this is a no charge two-evening event (February 13 and 14) in order to receive the DHS Certificate of Completion. You only need to register for one evening or the other, not both. Registration link is at the end of the article.

If you can only attend one half of the course in February, we'll conduct another similar event in March. For those that attended one half of the course in January, please attend whichever evening you did not attend in January, if you are available. The Zoom link for this event will be the same both evenings. I'll also send a Welcome Message to registered partners by February 8. I apologize for the bolded text, but these were challenges impacting the January courses, therefore, want to avoid them moving ahead.

To summarize the details below: This training educates and empowers community members to learn to identify when a person is demonstrating potential indicators of considering violence as an acceptable means and/ or the only means by which to satisfy a grievance. The goal is to learn to early identify, support a person if appropriate, who to share concerns with, and to discuss our civil rights and liberties. In my experience, Loved ones, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. are the frontline to early intervention for individuals beginning to experience a mental health challenge and/ or considering violence. We truly can make a difference!

This training is through my military affiliation, not my business.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Threat Evaluation & Reporting Office (NTER) shares information and resources with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (F/SLTT) homeland security partners to assist in threat mitigation and targeted violence prevention, regardless of motive.

NTER advances partners' ability to identify, investigate, assess, report and share tips and leads linked to emerging homeland security threats, while providing a host of information sharing services, such as program support, resources, and training.

The Threat Evaluation and Reporting Overview (TERO) is a three-hour (this course will be four hours due to the interactive nature of the event) introductory training focusing on a behavioral approach to violence prevention. The TERO raises awareness about the risk factors, triggers and stressors, and warning behaviors that could impact a person's decision to commit an act of targeted violence. Further, it outlines the mitigating factors that could help prevent acts of targeted violence, while emphasizing the importance of community involvement in seeking help for individuals, and respecting their privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.

This course is for awareness and informational purposes only. Investigating, assessing, and managing threats or observable behaviors that may concern others requires additional information and training beyond what is provided in the TERO. Please report any threats or observable behaviors that may concern others through the appropriate reporting channels.
