Threat Assessment Team
The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is committed to promoting a safe and secure community within a supportive and accessible living, learning, and working environment. As part of this commitment, UFV established the Threat Assessment Team (TAT). The TAT addresses threatening behaviour or incidents of violence through an objective fact-finding process and recommends management strategies to enhance the safety and security of the UFV Community and UFV Property. Early intervention is key in mitigating potential threats, and can also result in the successful activation of integral support services.
The TAT, under the authority of the Chief Financial Officer and Vice-President Administration, includes representation from multiple departments across UFV including Security and Emergency Management, Student Services, Human Resources, and other departments and/or offices as needed.
UFV Community members may contact the Director of Security and Emergency Management (TAT, Chair) to bring forward concerns regarding a threat to the safety or security of the UFV Community or UFV Property. A member of TAT can discuss with you the situation you are concerned about, and can help you understand whether the TAT or a different UFV office should be involved. All reports of concern will be handled in a confidential manner.
*In the event of a life-safety issue, dial 911 for fire, ambulance, and police assistance.
