Active Shooter Threat Assessment: Develop and Evaluate Preparedness Plans for a Safer Campus

This guide was developed to encourage you to look at your current preparedness plan’s effectiveness and determine how you can strengthen it before an active shooter threat becomes a reality.

No higher education administrator wants their campus to be the site of the next active shooter incident and realistically, you cannot absolutely prevent such incident from taking place. But you can do important work to ensure that you are prepared if a threat does happen. You want to be certain that your team knows how to respond at every stage of a violent incident on your campus.

This free white paper addresses threat assessment procedures and includes eight steps from the Secret Service’s report to help you create and beef up your comprehensive targeted violence prevention plan.

  1. Establish a Campus Multidisciplinary Threat Assessment Team
  2. Define Prohibited and Concerning Behavior
  3. Create a Central Reporting Mechanism
  4. Determine the Threshold for Law Enforcement Intervention
  5. Establish Threat Assessment Procedures
  6. Develop Risk Management Options
  7. Create and Promote Safe Campus Climates
  8. Conduct Threat Assessment Training

You’ll get sample templates for your text, email and voicemail messages during an active shooter incident and most importantly, suggestions about how to evaluate and improve any plan to reflect best practices in threat assessment and crisis preparedness.
