Saskatchewan Polytechnic is committed to ensuring the safety of all members of our campus communities. Promoting the development of an environment free of violence requires commitment from everyone at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.
Our goal is to respond to threats and worrisome behaviours quickly and in a professional manner. When the risk of violence or worrisome behaviour is reported, a threat assessment process is initiated. Threats will be taken seriously, investigated and responded to appropriately.
What happens in a threat assessment?
- All threats and worrisome behaviours are reported to the campus Health, Safety and Security manager, who activates the Saskatchewan Polytechnic threat assessment procedures.
- Interviews are held with the student(s), the threat maker and staff.
- An investigation determines the level of risk and directs an appropriate response to the incident.
- Intervention plans are developed, implemented and monitored.
The health, safety and security of students and employees is of utmost importance for Saskatchewan Polytechnic. Inquiries regarding the threat assessment process may be directed to the Health, Safety and Security manager at any Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus.
Community Threat Assessment and Support Protocol
Saskatchewan Polytechnic has signed protocols with a number of community agencies pledging to work together towards creating safer campus communities.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw, Prince Albert and Saskatoon locations are signed on to their local Community Threat Assessment and Support Protocols. Although Regina campus is not currently part of a local protocol they follow the same threat assessment procedures as our other campuses.
