Purpose and Charge:

The college BIT exists to serve as a proactive resource both internally and externally designed to address individual of concern threats and/or incidents. The team is designed to be a centralized, coordinated, caring, developmental intervention, and prevention mechanism.

The college BIT meets regularly to support students, faculty, and staff via the established incident response protocol found in BMCC Administrative Procedures SS-07-2015-0002, “Behavioral Intervention Team” and SS-07-2015-0001 “Duty to Report Criminal and Threatening Behavior.” The team receives reports of disruptive, problematic, or concerning behavior or misconduct; conducts investigations, performs threat assessment, and determines the best avenue for support, intervention, notification, and response. The team then deploys the appropriate response and coordinates follow-up.

The college BIT team is primarily responsible to:

  • Facilitate threat awareness, assessment, prevention, reporting, and response training for all staff, faculty, and students
  • Develop, distribute, and maintain campus safety information, materials, and tools for college wide use
  • Evaluate, respond, triage, and follow up to incident reports in a timely manner
  • Communicate and collaborate internally as well as externally for appropriate incident response
  • Track, report, and document incident records in accordance with college policy as well as state and federal rules
