South Colonie Central School Districts Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Safe Schools Christopher Robilotti was recently named a member of the newly formed Threat Assessment Coordination Team (TACT) led by Albany County.
Robilotti will join other representatives from Albany County including law enforcement representatives and other community stakeholders representing educational, religious and private sectors.
The purpose of AC-TACT is to address cases where a subject is displaying behavior that indicates a possibility of escalation to violence.
Robilotti who leads the South Colonie Safe Schools initiatives will support the group through the educational lens.
“This will be a great opportunity to be part of a team that will have an impact on the greater Capital Region,” said South Colonie Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Safe Schools Christopher Robilotti. “Anytime we can increase our collective resources and the support systems for students and community members of our town, then it is time well spent.”
While Albany County formally announced the TACT group today during a press briefing, individuals serving on the committee met earlier this month to discuss and lay the framework for sharing information about individuals who may pose a threat to the greater community.
“The idea is to address individuals before they pose a threat,” said Robilotti. “In that case, we would work together to develop a plan to implement resources that best support the individual to avoid any potential safety impact to the school community or the greater community at large.”
