The DC Chapter of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP) is sponsoring a satellite meeting in Pittsburgh on Friday, September 22nd from 10 am to 1 pm which will be hosted by the Carnegie Mellon University Campus Police Department. From 10-12 we will be participating via video conference with Kutztown University. Dr. Peter Langman will be discussing the psychology of school shooters (see below). From 12-1 ATAP will be sponsoring lunch and we will have time to network with local threat assessment professionals. In the PA/OH area, we are looking to build our membership with the hopes that we may become our own chapter in the future.
