Duke University and Duke University Health System

Welcome to the Duke University and Duke University Health System Behavioral Assessment and Violence Prevention reporting site.

Duke University and Duke University Hospital System are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all faculty, staff, students, hospital system employees, patients, and visitors. Duke’s multi-disciplinary Behavioral Assessment Teams missions are to identify, assess, manage, intervene, and mitigate acts or threats of violence by or against students, faculty, employees, patients, and visitors or other non-affiliated individuals.

The Behavioral Assessment Teams do not provide emergency response services. If violent behavior occurs or appears imminent, the Duke community is directed to contact 911.

Early recognition, intervention, and referral are critical to getting someone help and preventing violence before it occurs. This reporting site allows all members of our community to share incidents, observations, or communications that create concern about potential violence. While anonymous reporting is an option, please be aware that should you wish to remain anonymous we cannot provide you with any follow-up to the matter you are reporting. If you desire a follow up, contact information (Email Address or Phone Number) must be provided.

All information gathered during the process of assessment is conducted in accordance with standing Federal Law, State Law and Duke Policy regarding the privacy of information and access to information.
