Our country has experienced a wave of mass violence incidents, the majority of which have been mass shootings in our schools, our workplaces and our houses of worship. Clearly, a different type of resource was needed to assist state and territory attorney general offices in responding to this violence. Staff members from many attorney general offices, as well as from a district attorney office, as listed in the credits, provided substantive information, with Checklist development by Hedda Litwin, NAGTRI program counsel, and editing by Judy McKee, NAGTRI program counsel.

This Checklist is designed to be a living document. If your office confronts issues not discussed or develops best practices in responding to mass violence incidents, please forward them to NAGTRI so that the next edition of the Checklist can be even more useful to the attorney general community.
