Over the past decade, violent crimes involving stalking,
workplace violence, and attacks (or threats of attacks) on
public figures and officials have been prominent in the
news. In response, law enforcement and security
professionals are turning to prevention as a key component
of the strategy to control these offenses. A preeminent
organization, the Association of Threat Assessment
Professionals (ATAP), is dedicated to enhancing the
knowledge base of practitioners in this field.
ATAPusa.org is the ATAP National site.
Here you will find information about ATAP, along with
information about its chapters throughout the U.S. A public
forums area is available, with more site features and
resources coming soon.
