Threat Assessments: Developing Teams to Plan, Prevent and Protect

The Secret Service Safe School Initiative recommends schools use Threat Assessment Teams to reduce the possibility of a targeted act of violence when the possible offender is a member of the school community. 

Learn how Threat Assessment Teams can be used to:

  • Identify behaviors indicating a person might be on a path
  • Analyze the behaviors to determine the seriousness of the threat
  • Develop safety plans to protect the students and staff of the school
