Threat Evaluation and Management

The Threat Evaluation and Management (TEM) unit provides a proactive approach to preventing violence by:

  • evaluating the potential for targeted violence; and
  • implementing plans to reduce or eliminate the risk of a violent act occurring.

TEM can assist investigators in the allocation of resources by:

  • categorizing the threat;
  • evaluating the potential violence or risk;
  • suggesting intervention strategies; and
  • suggesting victim safety plans.

Typical files where TEM may provide an assessment include:

  • criminal harassment (stalking);
  • threats to public or political figures;
  • threatening correspondence;
  • workplace and school violence;
  • domestic violence;
  • threats to police officers and any other potential for targeted violence; and
  • terrorism.
