Today’s schools, businesses and healthcare campuses are employing indoor shot detection to reduce or eliminate delays and errors common in victim- or witness-initiated responses to active shooter incidents. Adding this technology to a campus life safety system can help shorten the duration of an active shooter event.
Parents and students were shocked after the Beaufort County School District's safety chief officer dressed as an intruder in an unannounced school safety drill.
A Florida man was arrested after he entered into a high school with a pocket knife attempting to test the school's security measures.
If signed into law, the measure would require districts to establish a threat-assessment team and teach students about violence prevention and identifying depression.
Some schools are hosting active shooting trainings that involve shooting blanks, and requiring students to practice what to do in case a shooter were on campus. However, some are wondering if these drills are too much for students to handle.
