Is this the future of “Safe” Schools?
Schools Are… A place for community to gather A place to deliberate A place to celebrate A place to worship A place to vote A place for the “safe” harbor and education of our children …but they are NOT intended to be prisons…
Security ≠ Technology But, I’ve Added Video Surveillance …I’ve Added Access Control …I’ve Added Door Monitoring Isn’t that enough?
Security Program The REAL questions: – How is the technology being used? – Who manages and operates those systems? – Is one camera on the inside at the door going to meet your expectations?
School Safety Objectives Deter Detect Delay Respond
Deterrents No one technology, feature, or system can completely deter violence from occurring Effective security “displaces” the unwanted behaviors Awareness Presence Visibility “Community” enforcement
