RSVP-3 Morris County
The School of the Chatham has partnered with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office on an anonymous tip application program called "RSVP-3 Morris County, NJ" to enable students or parents to report potential acts of violence.
The program is called “RSVP-3 Morris and may be downloaded in either the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The app allows the reporter to report a potential act of violence anonymously. Said report will be received immediately by local law enforcement and forwarded on to designated school personnel if the act concerns a student or school.
In concert with this program, one of our staff members, Dr. Evan Jaffe, along with local police personnel, has been trained in the Behavioral Threat Assessment Model, which is a method of assessing potential threats developed by the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Secret Service. Our goal in utilizing this program is to prevent any potential violent or criminal act.
