Webinar - The Importance of Learning from Averted and Completed School Attacks

Tuesday Jan 22, 2019 - 02:00pm to 03:30pm EST
Event Description: 

The National Center for Campus Public Safety is excited to launch its 2019 free webinar series, Campus Public Safety Online, this January with three incredible guest presenters: the National Police Foundation’s (NPF) Project Director Dr. Frank Straub; International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators’ Director of Government and External Relations Jeff Allison; and Executive Director and Founder of the Koshka Foundation Kristina Anderson, who will discuss “The Importance of Learning from Averted and Completed School Attacks.”

In this 90-minute webinar, Dr. Straub and Mr. Allison will provide an overview of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services-funded Averted School Violence (ASV) database and its application to higher education. The database is a free resource for those who play a role in school safety across the country at both the K-12 and higher education levels. The ASV database is used to collect, analyze, and share information on both averted and completed acts of violence in schools that have occurred post-Columbine. Dr. Straub will share key findings from the ASV database and from an NPF study that compared averted incidents of school violence to completed incidents. Ms. Anderson, a Virginia Tech shooting survivor, will share lessons learned from the Virginia Tech shooting. Her powerful story, including insight about threat assessment and other key areas of violence prevention, are valuable for anyone involved in campus safety.

This webinar is appropriate for those working in senior campus administration, campus safety and security, emergency management, law enforcement, threat assessment, residential life, student conduct and affairs, international education, victim/advocacy services, and mental health and counseling services, as well as Title IX coordinators and legal counsel.
