What is a Behavioral Intervention Team?
A BIT is a multi-disciplinary group whose purpose is to support its target audience (students, employees, faculty, staff, community, workplace) via an established protocol designed to help detect early indicators of the potential for disruptive conduct, self-harm, and the risk of violence to others.
The team tracks "red flags" over time, detecting patterns, trends, and disturbances in individual or group behavior. When a BIT receives reports of concerning behavior, the team conducts an investigation, performs a threat assessment, and determines the best mechanisms for support, intervention, warning/notification, and response.
