San Diego Chapter

Welcome Members and Guests

The San Diego ATAP Chapter began in 1998 and like today, includes a core group of law enforcement officers, prosecutors, probation officers, victim advocates, security, human resources, and mental health professionals. Chapter members actively work in the field of threat assessment and the investigation and management of workplace violence, domestic violence, and stalking cases.

The San Diego ATAP chapter features luncheon speakers who bring interesting and dynamic case studies and offer cutting-edge threat management strategies to the group. We proudly support the efforts of the ATAP National Board, including our annual participation as both presenters and attendees, in the ATAP National Conference in Anaheim held each August.
