11:00 am - 12:00 pm Are You Prepared for an Active Shooter on Campus?

We’ve seen it before with tragic events that seared the names of schools and campuses into our minds — Columbine, West Nickel Mines Amish School, Sandy Hook Elementary School, Virginia Tech, and Northern Illinois University.

The current information will help campus administrators and emergency responders prepare for a potential crisis situation involving an active shooter. The ideas presented will address steps schools and campuses can take to mitigate the risk of an active shooter – including what can be done to help prevent such an event as well as what steps can be taken before, during and after a situation should it occur.

The combination of well-planned security procedures, risk assessments, crisis preparedness planning, security technology, and training can help to reduce incidents on and around school campuses.

The Clery Act played a major role in the investigation and findings  during the Penn State investigation of a former football coach. More than 50 felony charges were filed, which resulted in a conviction. Charges were also filed against the athletic director for failure to report the criminal activity. Lessons learned will help inform compliance officers at colleges and universities.

There are more than 130,000 K-12 schools and more than 4,000 colleges/universities in the United States. Administrators and campus officials must continue to provide a safe and secure campus environment for their 70 million students.

Recent incidents on campuses emphasize the need for adopting, implementing and practicing emergency preparedness plans. While it is impossible to eliminate all the risks, this presentation will help identify measures that can be put in place to help minimize tragic situations from occurring and show how to deal with emergencies when they do occur.

You will learn how a thorough all-hazards assessment can identify potential shortfalls in your campus security as well as what innovative security technologies are available to address these concerns.
