The Moscow Police Department
The team also includes a clinical psychologist from the University's Counseling and Testing Center. University General Counsel will serve as an adviser to the Threat Assessment Team. The team is chaired by Matt Dorschel, Executive Director of Public Safety and Security.
The Threat Assessment and Management Team is charged with developing comprehensive fact-based assessments of students, employees, or other individuals who may present a threat to the university. The team is empowered to take timely and appropriate action, consistent with university policy and applicable law. The team will also collaborate with the campus community in the development of preventative measures, including implementing plans and protocols for responding to credible threats and acts of violence, and reviewing and developing Threat Assessment and Response policies and procedures.
