Concerning Behaviors

The Threat Assessment and Management Team (TAMT) is a multidisciplinary group of faculty and staff that:

  • Reviews reports about concerning behaviors.
  • Considers various approaches to managing concerning behaviors.
  • Provides guidance to students, faculty and staff on how to address and prevent violent and disruptive behaviors.

To report concerning communications (e.g., emails, voicemails, social media posts, etc.), please visit the TAMT website and select “Report a Concern” on the homepage. Any messages of this nature will undergo a thorough review process to determine their origin, conduct a risk assessment, and implement necessary measures to mitigate potential risks.  

In addition, you can install the LiveSafe app on your Apple or Android device for real-time interaction when reporting security and safety concerns. Videos and photos can be sent directly to UAPD through the app.
