The evolving national landscape of targeted violence and mass shootings prompted Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter to call for the formation of ROCTAC, a community-based partnership of corporations, schools and colleges, social service agencies, mental health professionals, and local and federal law enforcement working together to prevent acts of targeted violence in Monroe County.
How We Work
With support of the Monroe Sheriff’s Office, our approach involves collaborative work with our active partners to identify potential threats and mitigate any possible violence. When a potential threat is identified, ROCTAC experts in threat assessment and management help you and your team conduct an assessment and determine what steps to take to appropriately manage the threat. Through our active committee members, ROCTAC helps individuals who are believed to pose a potential threat by guiding them away from violence and toward assistance.
Who We Are
ROCTAC is an active network of organizations representing Monroe County corporations, schools and colleges, social service agencies, mental health professionals, and local and federal law enforcement – partners working together to prevent acts of targeted violence in Monroe County.
Report a Threat
Our ability to prevent acts of targeted violence heavily relies on people like you, the eyes and ears of our community, to help identify potential threats. ROCTAC provides crucial information and helpful resources on how to report a suspected or openly voiced act of targeted violence. If you have knowledge or have observed behavior in someone and think the person may be on the pathway to committing an act of targeted violence, you can make a referral here. You have the option of remaining anonymous.
