20 Active Shooter and Active Killer Prevention Strategies

Banning potentially dangerous persons from campus property combined with the arrest and search of violators who return can help campus officials interdict a potentially dangerous person before they can open fire.

When three guns were found in their possession, the suspects admitted they had come to the school to carry out a planned shooting.
