Anonymous Reporting Systems
According to the U.S. Secret Service, in the vast majority of mass casualty attacks in schools at least one other person had knowledge of the attacker’s plan. Anonymous reporting systems have been shown to be effective in identifying potential targeted school violence and suicidal threats. Successful anonymous reporting systems educate all members of the school community on indicators of potential self-harm or violence and how to share this information so officials can intervene before injury or loss of life occurs.
