Behavioral Intervention Team

When responding to an emergency or suspected criminal conduct, immediately call 911.

UCLA is committed to providing a safe work environment for faculty, staff, students and visitors - one that is free from violent behavior and threats of harm. UCLA prohibits violent behavior and threats of harm affecting the workplace and such behavior violates both law and University policy. The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is a multidisciplinary team consisting of representatives from Campus Counsel, Staff & Faculty Counseling, Insurance & Risk Management, UCLA Police Department and Employee & Labor Relations.

The team depends on referrals and reviews and discusses situations involving faculty, staff and others that have raised concern they may be at risk of harming themselves or others or pose a significant disruption to the campus environment. Behavior does not need to be illegal to be of concern.

Questions or reports should be directed to Chris Silva, Behavioral Intervention Coordinator, at (310) 794-0422 or ccsilva@chr.ucla.edu.
