College of the Mainland is committed to providing a safe learning and working environment for its students, employees, and visitors. In order to respond to potential threats, COM has established a Threat Assessment Team (TAT) to receive, coordinate and assess information on perceived threats to the safety and security of COM students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The team is composed of a multi-disciplinary group of individuals who have knowledge of appropriate means of assessing and evaluating information and who have access to resources necessary to mitigate risks. Members include the Chief of Police, Vice President for Student Services, Vice President for Instruction, Executive Director of Human Resources, Staff Attorney, Director of Student Success Center, Dean of Students, and other individuals as appropriate.


The Threat Assessment Team shall take a proactive, collaborative, coordinated, objective, and thoughtful approach to prevention, identification, assessment, intervention, and management of situations that pose, or may reasonably pose, a threat to the safety and well-being of the College District community.


The goal of the TAT is to provide an integrated and coordinated process for identifying and responding to students, faculty, staff, and visitors who may be at risk of harming themselves or others.
