What you need to know
No single tool or profile accurately predicts a person's potential for future violent behavior. On the one hand, individuals may exhibit one or more of the behaviors listed below and never respond with violence. On the other hand, someone may act violently without ever displaying any of these behaviors. Nevertheless, experience suggests the following behaviors may serve as warning signs of a potential for violence.
What is Your Role?
“If you see something, say something.” Your job is to report behavior that may be harmful to yourself or others. Warning signs can manifest themselves in many forms: one-on-one settings, group interaction, public behavior, letters, emails, blogs, websites, social networking sites, photos, phone calls, or text messages. Student should inform any college employee or use this online Report Form. College employees should tell a supervisor report it directly using the online Report Form any behavior that may be cause for concern.
Do not ignore or downplay direct or indirect threats from any person, as they could escalate into serious incidents later on. To prevent the escalation of such incidents, every member of the campus community should learn to recognize and report behavior that is disruptive, intimidating, or could potentially lead to violence.
The following list of “warning sign” behaviors is not intended to be fully comprehensive, but should help guide your reporting behavior:
Behavioral Changes (Significant);

Fixation with Offenders of Violence;
