New Website, Guide Helps Keep Schools Safe

School administration, law enforcement, emergency dispatch, and communities working to keep schools safe now have two new resources at their disposal, thanks to the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC).

SchoolSafetyInfo.org (http://www.schoolsafetyinfo.org) is a “clearinghouse of information and contacts for law enforcement and other public safety officials to prepare, respond and recover” as they work to keep schools as safe as possible.” In addition to the information above, funding resources will be added soon.

Sharing Ideas & Resources to Keep our Nation’s Schools Safe Volume II (PDF, 2.4 Mb) provides examples of real programs and success stories around the country preparing for and responding to school violence. Topics include cooperative efforts in communities, training programs, and projects such as smartphone apps and direct lines to emergency dispatch. Volume I (PDF, 2.3 Mb) was published in 2013.
