University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

675 18th Street, San Francisco, CA 94107

This event is for Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences faculty, staff, trainees, and volunteers only. It is not open to the general public.

The UCSF Police Department is offering a training and information session to provide all DPBS faculty, staff, and students with critical guidance on active threat situations. This presentation will help attendees understand the definition of an active threat, historical perspective of school and workplace shootings, recent statistical data from the FBI, how to recognize characteristics of potential actor(s), and provides response options. The presentation has an emphasis on identifying potential behaviors, indicators and characteristics of an actor(s) who may commit a violent threat. Early recognition and identification may prevent a violent incident from occurring through immediate reporting and early police intervention.

The presentation will also touch on potential active threat scenarios and discuss the mental preparation to survive an active threat. Attendees of the presentation will better understand how to apply situational awareness critical for their decision making, how to report an incident to police, expectations of police response, UCSF resources and what emergency notification tools are available.
