About The Course

Acts of school violence can be traced back to the Bath, Michigan School massacre in 1927. Although this incident was tragic in nature, most viewed school violence in the past as an anomaly. Today that's a sentiment no longer shared. Since 2009, there have been over 190 school shootings, stabbings, or other life threatening incidents effecting people, property, and reputations. The cost to the US economy directly linked to school violence is estimated to be $7.9 billion per year. Much of this cost can be significantly reduced by understanding the role and importance of school security and the need for spending more time preparing to prevent, rather than preparing to react.

This course is based on the original two week course developed to support the Connecticut State Police Critical Infrastructure Unit in 2004, and subsequently taught to dozens of law enforcement officials in the New England area. This course has been redesigned to meet today's time constraints, while also providing a systematic approach to the expanding field of school campus security. This course has been structured within three specific training opportunities, consisting of a Basic (Introduction), Intermediate and Advanced level sessions, each, three days in duration. Completion of all three sessions, participants will earn the designation of a Certified Security Assessor (CSA).
