Improving Situational Awareness Skills in Students, Staff, and Faculty

Bobby Brasher, Director of School Security, The Brook Hill School

Situational awareness has been described as a sixth sense, gut feeling or intuition. It is the state of awareness, perception, and cognitive reaction to an event in progress or one about to happen. 

This presentation will train staff in safety awareness, threat assessment, and behavioral analysis of the students they interact with daily. Participants will learn recommendations and techniques that can be applied both at school and within the community, based on the strategies and skills used by the United States Secret Service in their school threat assessment training. Student assessment methods derive from the FBI’s Behavior Analysis Unit and can assist teachers in identifying students at or near crisis level.
