Violence in our schools typically unfolds as a double tragedy.
The first is the incident itself and the consequences suffered by the victims and their families. The second tragedy comes in the aftermath when the inevitable missed “red flags” are reported. In the months following the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, it became clear that for at least two years, there were multiple warnings of the threat posed by the perpetrator. Family members, neighbors, classmates, counselors and others issued warnings to no avail. To prevent such attacks, we need to understand why these warnings failed. If we can address the second tragedy we will help stop the first.
TrapWire Athena provides law enforcement and schools the ability to report indicators of pending school violence. Athena’s matching algorithms constantly search for threat patterns and warn designated officials of detected threats in real-time. The identified threat pattern is then provided to those in a position to intervene and stop the attack.Request a Demo
