It’s Time to Get Serious about School Safety


Even with the unprecedented amount of money available in the 2018/2019 academic year for school safety and security, most schools will not reach a level of sustainable safety. 

The simple truth is that money is not the answer to our school security problem. Knowledge is. The ability to see the whole picture and execute a plan that includes all the best available resources administered by leading security experts is essential.
