Integrated Threat and Risk Assessment Centre (ITRAC)
The Integrated Threat and Risk Assessment Centre (ITRAC) assesses threats and develops risk reduction plans for domestic violence and stalking cases in Alberta, as well as providing expert advice and training about threat assessment, domestic violence, and stalking to police, government and community agencies throughout the province. ITRAC is also equipped to respond to various threats and acts of targeted violence, including domestic and non-domestic related cases.
ITRAC currently completes approximately 250 threat assessments each year. Requests for assessments are only accepted from police departments in Alberta on current domestic violence or stalking charges before the courts.
Graduate students from various post-secondary institutions – including MacEwan University in Edmonton, the University of Alberta, and Carleton University in Ottawa – collaborate with ITRAC on research projects that help direct the centre’s work. Members of ITRAC have also presented at international conferences and published research papers that have earned provincial and national recognition.
