Conducting Security Assessments: A Guide for Schools and Houses of Worship Virtual Roundtable

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

2:00 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. (EDT)

In support of Administration efforts to combat gun violence and prevent future mass casualty shootings, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is providing training, products, and resources to a broad range of stakeholders on active shooter awareness, incident response, and workplace violence. As a part of the Administration’s comprehensive efforts to prevent gun violence, DHS, in partnership with the Departments of Justice, Education, and Health and Human Services, plans to expand ongoing efforts to improve preparedness, and strengthen security and resilience in schools and other potential targets.  This includes hosting a webinar for educational institutions and houses of worship to initiate discussion around the need for safety and security assessments in the wake of recent mass casualty shootings.  

Representatives from the Department of Homeland Security and from religious and academic communities will discuss how to:

  • Develop assessment teams
  • Assess security measures
  • Create a culture of security throughout the institution

This free, online, interactive roundtable will include panel discussions, a question-and-answer session, and additional resources.
