Protecting America’s schools: A U.S. Secret Service analysis of targeted school violence.

The U.S. Secret Service has a longstanding tradition of conducting threat assessments as part of its mandate to ensure the safety of this Nation’s highest elected officials. Our National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) is dedicated to expanding the field of violence prevention by closely examining the targeted violence that affects communities across the United States. 


Averting Targeted School Violence

Every day, the Secret Service employs threat assessment methodologies as part of our protective mission. The agency’s National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) applies those methodologies to expand the research into the broader field of violence prevention. This work involves closely examining targeted violence impacting communities across the United States.


Recovering and Moving Forward:
Lessons Learned and Recommendations Following the Shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

The analysis in this report is intended to provide objective feedback to Broward County—not in judgement, but in careful study. Over the course of the review, the National Police Foundation assessment team met with a number of community members, organizations, and government officials who continue to work tirelessly to learn from the MSD shooting, address and advance preparedness, planning, and resilience throughout the Broward County community.


The Role of Districts in Developing HighQuality School Emergency Operations Plans

The report acknowledges that the problem of school violence is longstanding and complex, that each state is different, and that there are
certain limits to what the federal government can do. Indeed, the report recognizes there is “no universal school safety plan that will
work for every school across the country” and that “[s]uch a prescriptive approach by the federal government would be inappropriate, imprudent, and ineffective.”
