Planning and Response to an Active Shooter: An Interagency Security Committee Policy and Best Practices Guide (November 2015/2nd Edition)

This second edition of the Planning and Response to an Active Shooter: An Interagency Security Committee Policy and Best Practices Guide removes the FOUO material from the first edition released in July 2015 so that this guidance could be distributed to the public.

This publication is divided into two parts:

  • An outline for a new policy requirement for all nonmilitary Federal facilities within the Executive Branch of the government.
  • A set of best practices and recommendations to assist with implementing the active shooter policy.

Due to the nature of an active shooter event, this document contains guidance for all who might be involved, including law enforcement agencies, facility tenants, and the public.

Users with a need-to-know may access the FOUO version of this standard (July 2015, 1st Edition). To request access, please send an e-mail to ISCAccess@hq.dhs.gov with your full name and contact information, including email, agency name, and reason for access.
