Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management

PCG’s BTA Solution

Behavioral threat assessments (BTAs) are a proven method of early intervention that can help prevent acts of targeted violence in school environments. This practice is recommended by the FBI, U.S. Department of Education, and U.S. Secret Service.

Public Consulting Group’s (PCG’s) BTA solution manages threats to others and threats to self. It is integrated within our EDPlan™ case management platform that is used by over 3,600 school districts across the U.S. to securely manage supports to students with individual needs.

According to the Secret Service, "threat assessment is the best practice for preventing incidents of targeted violence.”
