Threat Assessment Team (TAT)
Purpose of the Threat Assessment Team
As a requirement of Virginia Code Section 23-9.2:10, each public college or university shall have in place policies and procedures for the prevention of violence on campus. RCC is committed to providing a safe campus environment that promotes student learning. As part of this commitment, RCC has established the Threat Assessment Team, a multi-disciplinary group responsible for evaluating and managing risks associated with behaviors that may present a threat to the campus community’s safety. The RCC TAT, in collaboration with the RCC Violence Prevention Committee, will help develop policies and procedures for violence prevention, including assessment and intervention with individuals whose behavior may pose a threat to campus safety. The RCC Threat Assessment Team members include the vice president of finance and administrative services, Glenns Campus dean, Warsaw Campus dean, dean of student development, human resources manager, counselors and other College constituencies as needed. All members of the Threat Assessment Team are considered to be school officials and will have complete access to student records when necessary to do their job.
The Threat Assessment Team is responsible for addressing reported behavioral or mental health incidents involving students, faculty, staff or visitors which occur on a RCC campus or site.

Annual Security Report
Rappahannock Community College is responsible for preparing and distributing an Annual Security Report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act).
The Annual Security Report is published every year by October 1 and contains three years of selected campus crime statistics.
In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Title II of Public Law 101-542), which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA). This act required all post secondary institutions participating in HEA’s Title IV student financial assistance programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000 and 2008. The 1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act in memory of a student who was slain in her dorm room in 1986. It is generally referred to as the Clery Act and is in section 485(f) of the HEA. In 2013, Congress passed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), which included additional amendments to the Clery Act.
The report is available here. Enrolled students and current personnel will receive an e-mail notification annually on or before October 1st when an updated report has been made available on this website. Print copies of the report may be obtained, free of charge, by request at the Service Desk of the main campus.
