If you recieve a threat

If you or a family member receives a threat, this should always be treated as legitimate and serious until proven otherwise.

The first thing to do is:

Consider if it should be escalated to the Police

If a threat is serious, personal and involves a physical threat to you or your family, then you should consider taking the threat to the Police in the first instance.

Talk to your manager
