Madison: I just don't think it's a good idea, looking for some secret weirdo off the Internet. I mean, we just had an assembly about this.

Josh: He's not a weirdo. He's a covert investigator.

What does "assembly" mean in this context?

I presume these characters are teenagers; it sounds like they are talking about a school assembly, which is a regular gathering of the whole school or a year group - they usually have a range of purposes, such as to communicate information, encourage common spirit, and to present various subjects.

In this case they apparently had a school assembly on the subject of Internet safety, warning them about "weirdos" they may encounter online.
