As police increasingly respond to “active shooter” situations, Attorney General Eric Holder said new strategies must be developed to limit the death toll, CNN reports.

Speaking at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in Philadelphia, Holder said mass shootings are on the rise.

“Although research methods and results vary, it’s become clear that new strategies — and aggressive national response protocols — must be employed to stop shooters in their tracks,” Holder told the police chiefs, CNN reported.

Recent research, Holder said, indicates “an immediate, aggressive response to active shooters” is needed.
