SCHOOL AND COLLEGE SAFETY AND SECURITY CONSULTANT
How do you create and maintain an environment in which your students, staff and parents feel safe and secure and ready to learn and grow?
How can you cost effectively implement a level of physical and procedural school and college security and safety that will properly address your risks and vulnerabilities?
How do you balance your need to be a welcoming community asset against your duty to properly and reasonably protect your students, staff and assets?
Is your school or college security and safety program a strategically planned and synergistic system that cost effectively prevents and mitigates your real threats and risks, or is it a collection of measures developed over the years as a reaction to incidents and concerns?
Are your school or college emergency and crisis plans timely, comprehensive and understood by all? In addition to natural disasters, fires and medical emergencies, do they comprehensively address purposeful incidents such as the intruder, threats and violence, abduction, bomb threats, terrorism, sabotage, heightened DHS Alert Levels, etc.?
(See the attached "School Safety Advisories" page for commentaries on recent school and college security and safety issues, and see the attached "School Violence" page for more on our School and College violence prevention, mitigation/de-escalation and response programs)
Developing, implementing and managing a school or college safety, security and emergency response program that provides a safe educational environment including the needed level of control and protection while maintaining or improving the desired levels of accessibility, service and satisfaction is a challenge.
We have extensive experience providing school and college security assessment and planning services. Our school security and safety consulting services are always focused upon your unique culture, values, history, location, composition, risks, vulnerabilities, threats and budgets. We know that it is particularly essential to elicit the support for, understanding of, and involvement in school safety and emergency response by all staff, students, parents, emergency responders and even the community.
We have experience meeting the school security and safety assessment standards of the U.S. Department of Education "Safe Schools, Healthy Students" Safe School Environment initiative and related school Emergency Response and Crisis Management programs. We can also support grantees of the U.S. Department of Education Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) grants as part of Emergency Response and Crisis Management (ERCM) grants under the Government Performance and Results Act ( GPRA).
Note that a comprehensive security and safety assessment is a perfect first step in determining the relative level of security and safety and what you reasonably need to do to achieve a prudent level of protection and response.
