Register for CUPD Active Harmer Response Class

Sergeant John Zizz teaches an Active Harmer class in April of 2017.

We offer a series of four workplace violence and active harmer response and prevention training classes. The level one class will be held at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17. These classes will be held in room 247 in the University Memorial Center (UMC). Registration is required.

If you have already taken the level one class, we encourage you to take the level two class. The next level two class will be Wednesday, Sept. 27 with sessions at 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. These classes will be held in the second-floor conference room of the Environment Health & Safety Center. Once again, registration is required.

The level two course is geared as a proactive training on how to recognize threat behaviors, report them and help prevent an incident from occurring. The group will explore common traits in the majority of these attacks, as well as clues that are found in the pre-attack behaviors of active harmers. Also, the class will review the significant resources available at CU Boulder, including a threat analysis and a mental-health professional intervention to stop a potential aggressor.
