Free Video Podcast on Targeted Acts of Violence in Schools Clarifies “Active Shooter” Incidents

Safe Havens Video has posted a free school safety video podcast that explains what a targeted act of violence in schools is.  Often referred to as active shooter situations, these deadly but rare acts of violence have dominated the media coverage of school safety and have dramatically shaped the way school and public safety officials think about school weapons violence.   

Keeping these terrible incidents in context with far more common types of school weapons assaults is important to help maintain appropriate balance in prevention and emergency preparedness efforts.
