9780128005682: The Handbook for School Safety and Security: Best Practices and Procedures

School security is one of the most pressing public concerns today. Yet in most schools, there is little security expertise or detailed knowledge about how to implement and manage a security program. The Handbook for School Safety and Security rectifies this problem by providing the salient information school administrators and security professionals need to address the most important security issues schools face.

Made up of contributions from leading experts in school security, The Handbook for School Safety and Security provides a wealth of practical information for securing any K-12 school. It discusses key approaches and best practices for school crime prevention, including such topics as crisis management and mass notification. It also covers the physical measure needed for protecting a school, including detailed discussions of access control, lighting, alarms, and locks.

While there is no single fix for the myriad of security challenges facing today's school security professionals, the best practices found in The Handbook for School Safety and Security will help increase the safety and security of any school.

  • Brings together the collective experience of industry-leading subject matter specialists into one resource.
  • Covers all the key areas needed for developing and implementing a school security program.
  • Includes a list of 100 things to know when developing a school security program.
