Protecting America’s Schools: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Targeted School Violence

7-Nov-2019 - The U.S. Secret Service released a new report on targeted school violence in the United States. The study, Protecting America’s Schools: A U.S. Secret Service Analysis of Targeted School Violence, identifies 41 incidents of attacks against K-12 schools in the United States from 2008 to 2017.

Researchers with the Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) have examined the background and behaviors of the attackers and identified a series of key findings and significant commonalities.

“Keeping schools safe requires a team effort, and I am proud to stand with our partners across the federal, state and local governments, our school boards, law enforcement and the public in this important work to better protect our children,” said U.S. Secret Service Director James M. Murray. “The Secret Service will steadfastly continue these collaborative efforts in support of our nation’s schools and communities.”

The report identifies 10 key findings among the 41 incidents:

  • There is no profile of a student attacker, nor is there a profile for the type of school that has been targeted.
  • Attackers usually had multiple motives, the most common involving a grievance with classmates.
  • Most attackers used firearms, and firearms were most often acquired from the home.
  • Most attackers had experienced psychological, behavioral, or developmental symptoms.
  • Half of the attackers had interests in violent topics, like the Columbine shooting or Hitler.
  • All attackers experienced social stressors involving their relationships with peers and/or romantic partners.
  • Nearly every attacker experienced negative home life factors.
  • Most attackers were victims of bullying, which was often observed by others.
  • Most attackers had a history of school disciplinary actions, and many had prior contact with law enforcement.
  • All attackers exhibited concerning behaviors. Most elicited concern from others, and most communicated their intent to attack.

“School safety is our collective responsibility as a nation and we must remain one step ahead of tragedy,” said Dr. Lina Alathari, Chief of the National Threat Assessment Center.

Service mission uniquely positions the agency to equip our schools with the most comprehensive intelligence in the development of prevention and threat assessment programs.”

Since the 1990’s, the Secret Service NTAC has been conducting research, training, consultation, and information sharing on threat assessment and the prevention of targeted violence. NTAC has studied attacks directed at government agencies and officials, workplaces, and schools, colleges, and universities. This systematic approach identifies individuals who may be exhibiting threatening or concerning behavior and assessing the risk posed by the individual. The continuous academic and research-based approach to studying indicators of acts of violence supports the Secret Service's protective mission and our nation's effort to better protect our communities.

In July 2018, the Secret Service published Enhancing School Safety Using a Threat Assessment Model: An Operational Guide for Preventing Targeted School Violence and defined a model for the creation of school threat assessment programs.

NTAC will hold additional presentations of this research in the coming weeks in Chicago, Los Angeles,and Miami for executives, administrators, law enforcement and other relevant stakeholders.

The Secret Service will continue to build on our threat assessment methodology and provide our research findings and approach to the public and private sectors to enhance prevention efforts of those charged with safeguarding our nation.
