Since 2020, the Department of Safety & Security has conducted multiple Active Attacker Prevention, Response, and Notification trainings for over a thousand University community members. Although active attackers at universities and medical centers are statistically rare, the impact on the affected individuals and communities cannot be overstated. In that regard, and especially following the tragedy on Grounds on November 13, 2022, the Department of Safety & Security continues its commitment to further educate the UVA community about public safety.

In this 60-minute training, the Department of Safety & Security will discuss what the University Threat Assessment Team, Office of Emergency Management, and Police Department are doing to prevent and, if needed, respond to and notify the UVA community of an active attacker event.

Participants will learn about Emergency Notifications, how to report concerning behavior, and easy-to-remember options for people facing a violent situation. This training is free and open to all students, employees, faculty, and the Academic and UVA Health Divisions staff. For more information, contact Rachel Slotter (Office of Emergency Management).
