Event description
Protecting America’s Schools: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Targeted School Violence

About this Event

Ensuring the safety of children at school is a responsibility that belongs to everyone. To inform these efforts, the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) will present on the findings and recommendations from its latest study, Protecting America’s Schools: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Targeted School Violence. The findings from this study, which analyzed 41 incidents of targeted school violence that occurred at K-12 schools in the United States from 2008-2017, indicate that targeted violence is preventable. This presentation will focus on how communities can use a multidisciplinary approach to identify and intervene with students who are exhibiting concerning or threatening behaviors.

This seminar is recommended for educators, school counselors and education administrators, law enforcement personnel and administrators, school resource officers, counselors and mental health specialists, and other public safety professionals.

This is not active shooter response training.

Proudly sponsored by the South Suburban Association Chiefs of Police and hosted by the Park Forest Police Department
