    What is Threat Management:

    Threat management is the process by which we identify, investigate and manage individuals who hold violent intentions. Threat management operates in the space between warning sign and completed acts of violence. In the past, people often felt powerless to act as individuals displayed worrying signs of an intent to commit harm but without having committed any act of violence, seemingly nothing could be done about the matter. However contemporary threat management is a system that allows for intervention before violence takes place. Threat management once in place allows for people displaying indicators of violence to be identified and investigations to take place into the reasons for their behaviour and their capacity to carry out any threatened actions. These individuals are then managed as required to prevent them from carrying out any violent acts. This process takes a team of skilled professionals working together with qualifications, skills and experience in law enforcement, security, law and Forensic Psychology. It is for this reason Precision Integrity Services is regularly engaged for Threat Management Services as our diverse team of professionals is experienced and well equipped at managing those that are on the pathway to intended violence.

    Contemporary Threat Management

    Precision Integrity Services utilizes the Contemporary Threat Management model which was developed by leading experts in the United States. Contemporary Threat management is devised to address potential acts of violence which are carried out for their own sake, not to be confused with violence which is carried out to further another criminal motivation. For example, Contemporary Threat Management does not address armed robbery as the violence in an armed robbery is devised to get compliance in order to facilitate the theft of precious goods. Instead threat management addresses assassinations, planned acts of Domestic Violence, premeditated attacks at schools, universities, churches and within the workplace. Contemporary threat management also provides for instances where the offender specifically targets other individuals because of who they are, how they are related to the perpetrator or what they symbolise.

    Does Threat Management Work?

    Some of the most violent attacks in recent times have been perpetrated by offenders who once agitated through a perceived (correctly or incorrectly) slight against them have planned and executed extremely violent attacks in public places or in the homes of their victims. The news reports are filled with familiar sentiments and statements such as “they just snapped” or “I always knew there was something not quite right about them.” Studies show that the instances of a person “snapping” are practically non-existent. In virtually all occasions there were pre-attack behaviours or leakage that had they been addressed would have prevented the violence. Those that describe someone as being not quite right are really saying they have been a witness to behaviour they felt was inappropriate, but they are not able to articulate this or are uncomfortable articulating them at the time. Overall studies have shown that pre-attack indicators can occur for years and months before an act of violence is carried out and if a threat manager intercedes, through the use of an array of strategies the potential offender can be managed off their intended path of violence. This can often be carried out without the need for Police intervention and without overt measures being put in place if carried out correctly. This allows for the safest and most economical outcomes for all parties involved in the vast majority of cases.

    When Should a Threat Manager or Threat Management Team be Brought in?

    Threat managers should be engaged early before any indications of violence or threats from an individual have occurred. The purpose here is to ensure you have a threat management system in place which will allow key staff to identify indicators or potential violence and what to do. This is the first key element of preventing violence, the identification of the potential for future violence. After this we suggest the threat manager or team is triggered at the earliest instance of threatening or suicidal behaviour. Often times the response can be triggered by what appears to be an idol threat or a letter demanding some kind of action “or else…”. However, this is the time for the system to engage and progress through the necessary steps to defuse a potential time bomb of violence and aggression.
