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 was developed to assist school officials, law enforcement and private sector security partners in developing the knowledge and ability to evaluate and identify weaknesses within the school campus and develop assessment reports with recommendation for security improvements. 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.

  • Some of the Key Learning Objectives in the Intermediate Session are: 
  • Review Assessment Methodology (CPTED, CARVER and more)
  • Expanding the Threat Assessment & Resources 
  • Review Security Policy & Procedures
  • Review Access Controls, Doors, Locks, Glazing and Security Lighting Applications 
  • Review Security Standards & Best Practices for Schools
  • Review of Security Problems & Solutions
  • Case study review & class practical exercise and more

Who Should Attend?

The current course offering (Basic / Introduction) is targeted to the individual who is new to the school campus security requirements and industry best practices; responsible for school security programs and has a need to conduct security surveys or full site security assessments; responsible for reviewing security policies and procedures and monitoring security technology. This course is ideal for school facilities personnel, campus crime prevention officers, SRO's, SSO's, supervisors within community policing units, college or university personnel tasked with asset protection duties. 

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive:
