Averting Targeted School Violence: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Plots Against Schools

18th Annual Safe Schools Organizational Roster

Simple Attendee Report


For oUS Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center logover 20 years, the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) has conducted research on the thinking and behaviors of those who commit acts of targeted school violence, in an effort to prevent future acts from occurring. To continue to inform these efforts, NTAC will present on the findings and recommendations from its latest study, Averting Targeted School Violence: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Plots Against Schools. This study analyzed 67 disrupted school plots targeting K-12 schools from 2006-2018 that were thwarted through the efforts of school personnel, law enforcement, or others.

Key findings from this research indicate that establishing multi-disciplinary threat assessment teams and encouraging school communities to report concerning behaviors are critical steps to early intervention and prevention of targeted violence. It will also focus on how commuinties can use a multidisciplinary approach to identify, assess, and intervene with students exhibiting concerning or threatening behaviors as early as possible.
