Transitioning from Security Staff to Campus Police Department: The Important Differences and Liabilities to Consider

Transitioning from school (school district or college) security staff positions to police would seemingly fix many safety and security concerns. Having highly skilled police officers as on-site employees may deter incidents and allow for a more confident response. It may allow for closer collaboration with local law enforcement officials and access to controlled information that can help keep school districts or campuses safe.

However, the transition also opens doors to potential serious issues and liabilities. The transition from security to police officers or to start a police department usually revolves around important topics such as uniforms, vehicles, weapons and communications equipment. These are all critical, but there are other key areas that must be understood because of their significant implications.

For instance, administrative pitfalls include different requirements and implications for enforcing school policy vs. law, access control to school offices and networks that access criminal history, laws governing police officer discipline, IRS rules on take-home vehicles, Fair Labor Standards Act laws, hiring and background considerations, implications for confidentiality, MOUs, optimum location of the police within the overall school administrative hierarchy, and more. These and other administrative, legal and operations considerations must be resolved before any transition is contemplated.

This presentation will discuss NOVA's transition from a security department to a police organization, lessons learned along the way, and leading practices.

Attendees Will:

  1. Learn key differences between a campus security department and a police department.
  2. Understand priorities and leading practices for a new school police chief.
  3. Address potential areas of liability.

Enhancing School Security: An Overview of SchoolSafety.gov’s Free Resources

Following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the federal government established the Federal Commission on School Safety. After a series of listening sessions and meetings with school security stakeholders, the commission issued the Final Report of the Federal Commission on School Safety in December 2018. The report included recommendations for the federal government’s role in enhancing school safety, including the development of a Federal School Safety Clearinghouse (Clearinghouse).The Clearinghouse, comprised of the commission-member Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Justice, serves as the foundation for a coordinated agency effort to recommend leading practices to keep schools safe.SchoolSafety.gov, developed by the Clearinghouse, provides one-stop access to school safety resources, programs and actionable recommendations to support school efforts in creating a safe learning environment for students. SchoolSafety.gov serves as the Clearinghouse’s public-facing vehicle and offers multiple tools to assist users in enhancing security at their respective schools.Following the overview, participants will view a live demo of the website and its functionality, specifically highlighting the below three tools:•A school safety readiness tool that enables users to identify current gaps in their school safety posture. The self-assessment is intended to be a starting point for users who want to evaluate their school’s present safety posture and receive guidance on how to implement school safety initiatives. •A customized and downloadable action plan, tailored to user needs based on their school safety readiness tool responses, provides the user’s school with safety topic prioritization, actionable recommendations, and aligned resources and grants that can be utilized to enhance school security. •A secure information sharing platform that allows authorized school personnel, such as principals, emergency planners and SROs, to share emergency operations plans and resources with other members of the school safety community. Users will undergo a background verification process prior to joining the platform.

Workshop D: Campus Events, Controversial Speakers, and Protests: Creating Policies for Maintaining Safety, Security, and University Support on Campus

Part 1 – Large Scale Event Safety in Confined Spaces Following the tragedy of the Las Vegas-Mandalay Bay mass shootings, security leaders are rethinking the playbook for properly safeguarding today’s confined spaces. James DeMeo will discuss how security leaders can make a monumental impact in the vertical by sharing leading practices and lessons learned with their industry peers.Confined space protection refers to densely populated areas where people congregate to watch a particular performance. Proactive risk mitigation event staff training is a key component in confronting these types of challenges. The integration of technology, physical security screening measures, biometrics, licence plate readers, effective communications between first responders and event staff, crowd control, crowd dynamics, understanding patron demographics, along with responsible social media monitoring can play a monumental role in helping to prevent/reduce the loss of life concerning the proper safeguarding of future events. The importance of brand protection, business continuity and resiliency cannot be underscored in these endeavors. Safeguarding these confined spaces is not a fear-based model but one based upon employee empowerment. Proactive training, education and career development resources for those protecting the space will be the difference maker in keeping fans safe and secure.Part 2 – Managing Controversial Speakers on Campus Steven Vrooman will lay out some key areas of law, overview current developments with speakers and campuses across the country, and set forth some critical areas for decisions higher ed institutions should be making to be proactive on these issues. He and attendees will then engage in a robust discussion where private and public institutions will dialogue and be separated into smaller working groups of similar institutions to develop ideas in response to some test cases. This session will highlight the current state of the controversial speaker landscape and what to look ahead to during the election season.Part 3 – Developing Partnerships with All Community Stakeholders for Large Events Lt. Mario Leon will discuss how successful large-scale events on a university campus involves many partnerships with both internal university departments and support from local/state/federal law enforcement agencies. It is important to address security issues both within the venue and the surrounding areas of campus. Although law enforcement takes point in many circumstances, ongoing planning with university officials is key to promoting a safe and secure environment.Knowing what resources are available and who to contact helps with planned events, but those contacts are more important when unplanned events take place. University officials guide policy decisions, freedom of speech, grounds maintenance and risk management concerns. Law enforcement plans for event staffing, communications interoperability and creation of a good incident command operations plan. This session will show the importance of combining law enforcement operations with university resources in planning large events. Part 4 – Panel Discussion and Q&A with Audience
