You’re invited: Violence Risk Triage Workshop

First responders are invited to join us for a one-day workshop on November 1

In partnership with Protect International, Metro Vancouver Transit Police is hosting a 1-Day Violence Risk Triage Workshop for identifying what warning signs to look for related to violence risk and what immediate actions to take related to follow up and documentation. The workshop is taking place on 1 November 2019 at our Headquarters in New Westminster, British Columbia.

The Violence Risk Triage is based on research, supported by best practice, and acceptable in a court of law. The workshop will focus on:

  • The nature of violence and violence risk
  • Professional responsibilities related to identifying and responding to warning signs
  • Identification of warning signs related to violence risk and implementation of immediate actions 
  • Administration of the Violence Risk Triage
