So far in 2018 there have been 7 confirmed incidents of firearm attacks in a school, 5 of which caused injury or death. This is just one example of violence that can occur in a school setting resulting in criminal investigation and a potential response from your local Children's Advocacy Center. While we all hope that an incident of school violence never happens in our community, it is important that Children's Advocacy Centers begin having the discussion to plan a response in the unfortunate event it does occur. Learn how the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center started the discussion in Texas and subsequently organized a committee who developed a response plan and how this information has been proactively shared with local school districts and law enforcement agencies. Tips on how to start a similar discussion in your area and organizing a coordinated response will be shared.
