In June 2018, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) released the new report titled, “A Study of the Pre-Attack Behaviors of Active Shooters in the US, between 2000-2013”. The report articulates concrete observable pre-attack behaviors of active shooters to help law enforcement, school officials, and others better identify and manage individuals who may be on a path to violence.
The United States Secret Service's National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) also released the “Enhancing School Safety Using a Threat Assessment Model“ guide in July 2018. This was the first phase of a federal initiative to provide resources and guidance regarding the prevention of school-based violence.
Both of these documents offer insight into the pre-attack behavior of shooters and how to enhance school safety using threat assessments.
To provide an in-depth look at the recommendations included in these documents, the EIA partnered with Dr. Steve Albrecht to add the following three webcasts to EIAtv.
- Learning from US Secret Service and FBI Research Reports
- The Power of Threat Assessment Teams
- Physical Security Assessments and Improvements
