National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC): Preventing Targeted School Violence
Research, Analysis and Key Findings of Averted & Targeted School Violence


Important Session Information:

For over 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.  Key findings from this research indicate that establishing multidisciplinary threat assessment teams and encouraging the reporting of concerning behaviors are critical steps in keeping communities safe. 


This presentation will demonstrate that targeted violence is preventable.  It will highlight relevant past incidents and include findings and recommendations from NTAC’s latest research publications on targeted school violence and averted school attacks at K-12 schools in the United States.  It will focus on using a multidisciplinary approach to identify, assess, and intervene with students exhibiting concerning or threatening behaviors as early as possible.

NTAC training will be followed by Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) which will be presented by the Lubbock Police Department.

This event is intended for educators, law enforcement, and other public safety professionals.
