USA Software has developed a behavioral threat assessment instrument that follows the Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (CSTAG) developed by Professor Dewey Cornell of the University of Virginia. The instrument is also known as SAI (Safety Assessment and Intervention) by Sandy Hook Promise.
“USA Software’s expertise in identification, threat assessment, and case management is a welcome addition to the ZeroNow alliance,” said ZeroNow Founder and Board President Ara Bagdasarian. “The collaboration among the ZeroNow community drives ideas and innovation. USA Software will be a valuable contributor.”
Founder and president of USA Software F.A. "Woody" Spencer said, “The ZeroNow alliance of educators, campus law enforcement and technology companies is exactly where USA Software needs to be right now. The stakeholders in preventing campus violence must learn from, and with, one another if we are to succeed in our shared goal of increasing school safety and security.”
ZeroNow was founded by technology partners Additional, Axis Communications, Johnson Controls, Omnilert and Telos Corporation, along with campus safety nonprofit partners the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), NASPA (the Association of Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education), Campus Safety Magazine, and VTV Family Outreach Foundation.
