National Threat Assessment Center 2020 School Safety Series
National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) Workshop
Date: Wednesday, February 19, 2020 | Time: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm ET | Location: Miami, FL
Join us in Miami with the U.S. Secret Service’s National Threat Assessment Center for a full day of programming around the recently released report, Protecting America’s Schools
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.
