Event description
The U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center invites you to attend a National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) Workshop

About this Event

The U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) presents their new study entitled "Protecting America's Schools: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Targeted School Violence" and the report's implications for the prevention of targeted violence in schools. The study examines 41 targeted attacks that occurred in K-12 schools from 2008-2017 in which at least one person was harmed. The study expands beyond the previous 2002 study, the Safe Schools Initiative, and will discus relevant topics to threat assessment including, but not limited to:

  • Motives, targeting tactics, and harm caused
  • Concerning communication made prior to the attacks
  • The diversity of stressors and home-life factors that may have played a role
  • School histories of discipline and performance
  • Concerning behaviors exhibited prior, who may have observed them, and what actions may or may not have been taken by others
  • Histories of behavioral or emotional issues and their impact on actions

This free event is open to law enforcement, teachers, counselors, principals, superintendents, School Resource Officers, school psychologists, community mental health professionals, and other school safety and security stakeholders.

All attendees MUST register to attend.

Registration/Check-in is between 8:00 am - 9:00 am. The event will begin promptly at 9:00 am.
