Five Things about Protecting Against Mass Attacks

Funded by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), this toolkit serves as an online educational toolkit with strategies, guidance and links to resources on preventing and responding to mass attacks. Mass public attacks, whether personally or ideologically motivated, cause much concern and fear. Nonetheless, you can often take actions to prevent, defend against and respond to them. A recent NIJ funded research project analyzed over 600 mass attack plots, hundreds of articles and resources, and dozens of expert interviews to develop the Mass Attacks Defense Toolkit.
