Data prove that in the majority of violent attacks, the individual involved shared concerning behavior prior to the event. In fact, according to the National Threat Assessment Center’s analysis of mass attacks in 2017, 75 percent of the perpetrators made concerning communications or elicited concern from others prior to the event.
See Something Say Something Works. It all began with a campaign started by the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority in 2003. It was later adopted by the Department of Homeland Security with the goal of inspiring, empowering and educating the public on reporting suspicious activity. Since then, a San Jose State University study of attacks at public transportation facilities found that more than 14 percent of those attacks were prevented when passengers or staff reported concerning behaviors.
And, it’s not just public transportation. More and more states are adopting mobile apps or anonymous tiplines for school students, including the following 19: Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.
