Overview of Community Engagement in Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (TVTP)   [open pdf - 493KB]

From the Overview: "Prevention practitioners and community leaders share a common goal: protecting our communities and families from those who wish to commit violent acts, and helping those who might be radicalizing to violence to get the wrap-around support they need before a violent act is committed. Engaging members of your community--including peers, teachers, law enforcement, and community leaders--is critical for empowering bystanders--those who observe concerning behavior--to identify and prevent susceptible individuals from radicalizing and mobilizing to violence 'before' it becomes a law enforcement matter. This guide provides practical information for conducting effective community engagement in this realm."
