More than 2 dozen groups sign threat assessment protocol

A total of 26 organizations signed the fourth edition of the Community Threat Assessment Protocol in Sudbury on Tuesday.

Essentially, the protocol allows organizations to work together on violence prevention, threat management and safety planning by sharing information, advice and support that helps reduce risks.

"Primarily it started off being our young people, but now it is for any individual within the community where if someone has a shift in their baseline and we observe it, we try to figure out what’s going on so we check in," said Anna Barsanti, violence threat risk assessment community coordinator.
