Protect Your People and Organization From Active Assailant Threats
Active active shooter incidents increased 98.6 percent between 2017 and 2021

FBI data shows that active shooter incidents — described as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area — increased 98.6 percent between 2017 and 2021.
