About Us

The Idaho Threat Assessment Conference (ITAC), in its 8th year, exists to provide threat assessment training by and for local, state, and federal law enforcement, government agency officials, and school behavioral intervention teams from around the country. The conference features law enforcement officials and other subject matter experts who use recent incidents like mass shootings and other crimes of targeted violence to educate attendees on best practices — and lessons learned — in threat assessment and response. Past topics include the Mandalay Bay Active Assailant Incident, Sandy Hook, Columbine, domestic violence and stalking incidents, as well as other case studies presented by the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, crime victims, and law enforcement departments from around the country.

This conference is co-sponsored by the Boise Police Department, which enables officers to earn POST credit for attendance.
