On December 4, 2015, the FBI released Mass Victimization: Promising Avenues for Prevention, a new publication that is the result of a multi-agency collaborative conference that took place in August 2013. 

Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies are traditionally reactive in their response to mass victimization incidents and have become highly efficient and effective in theses efforts. However, the goal of the conference, and this document, was to identify promising practices to become more proactive and prevent, but not predict, incidents of mass victimization.

This document focuses on seven promising prevention strategies viewed through the important lens of threat assessment, defined here as "the set of investigative and operational techniques that can be used by law enforcement professionals to identify, assess, and manage the risks of targeted violence and its potential perpetrators." Each promising prevention strategy is explored in depth and includes follow up questions to consider as well as resources. 

We encourage you to download and explore this important document.
