During an active shooter, any severe weather, or hazardous incident, collaboration is critical. For all responders to be effective in their response, it is critical for this collaboration to begin long before an emergency happens.
This workshop will bring together safety and security experts from NFPA 3000, Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS), and the Police Foundation to discuss guidelines and recommendations for overall preparedness, response, and recovery in the event of a crisis.
Released in spring 2018, the scope of NFPA 3000 is to provide the minimum criteria for the level of competence required for responders organizing, managing, and sustaining an active shooter and/or hostile event preparedness and response program based on the authority having jurisdiction’s function and assessed level of risk. The Technical Committee reflects all elements of the community, including law enforcement, fire, EMS, healthcare, schools, facilities, security, and the public.
The panel will also address technology as a layered approach related to building perimeter, parking lot perimeter, classroom interior and how to use the technology in compliance with policies and procedures.
You are head of campus security and you are sitting in a meeting with the heads of IT and Facilities, the school’s Vice President of Finance and Administration, and the College President or School Principal and Superintendent. The purpose of your meeting is to consider the purchase of equipment to upgrade safety and security. There are three options on the table: a new video surveillance system, an access control system, and panic alarms/buttons for all classrooms and offices. Unfortunately, your budget is not sufficiently robust to select all three, so you need to evaluate what to buy. Complicating the problem is that police and security want the camera system, Facilities is supporting the electronic key system, and IT advocates the panic alarms. Each attendee can make a convincing argument in support of his or her desired option. So, what are some of the security goals of any school? Seven are listed, in no particular order, recognizing there may be more and further, that their priorities may change over time with dynamic trends, policies, and experiences:

The Conference was very informative and had practical roundtable sessions. I recommend this conference to any Head of Security. Its a great way to network with fellow professionals.
