The TAPS Act has all the earmarks of a paranoid police state that considers everyone a potential threat.
The TAPS Act will create a "Joint Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management Task Force to identify individuals that exhibit patterns of dangerous behavior that MAY precede an act of targeted violence."
According to Senators Marco Rubio, Kyrsten Sinemea and Thom Tillis, the TAPS Act will create a national behavioral threat assessment and management process for everyone.
Requires the Task Forces recommendations for the development of the National Strategy to:
Ensure consideration of the different needs and resources of communities across the country, and will not be construed as a national standard.
Include recommendations for the most effective leveraging of existing Federal, State, local, and Tribal infrastructure, workforce, and experience.
Include recommendations to increase collaboration between government agencies and private entities that focus on public safety responsibilities.
Include recommendations on training programs to disseminate to State and Local entities.
Include recommendations for a Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management School Violence Prevention Program to train and support a multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional behavioral threat assessment and management process for educational entities.
