The Center for Aggression Management has implemented its first Campus Aggression Prevention System (CAPS), a Risk Management System (RMS) at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU). It is our intention that EKU become the vanguard of campus safety through CAPS.
USA Today was intrigued enough to sit in on one-day of this three-day CAPS training because they realize the EKU is implementing their Behavioral Intervention Teams and wish to use cutting edge technology and training. We are expecting the article to be published this week.
There are three components to CAPS: First Observers (eyes and ears for aggression on campus), Qualified Responders (trained Behavioral Intervention Team members) and software platform (Meter of Emerging Aggression and Longitudinal Tracking of Aggression on Campus).
