Targeted violence has become increasingly common. Incidents of stalking, workplace violence, and communicated threats are all precursors to future lethal violence.
Concept: The field of “threat assessment” covers a variety of criminal acts, all of which can be predecessors of lethal violence.
It is critical to assess the current incident, the personal and situational factors that fueled the incident, and the overall risk for future violence.
