Back to School

AS THE SUMMER HAS COME TO AN END, CLASSES ARE MOST LIKELY BACK IN SESSION AND STUDENTS ARE ALREADY SETTLING BACK INTO THE NEW ROUTINE. AND FOR SUPERINTENDENTS, SCHOOL STAFF MEMBERS AND CAMPUS SECURITY TEAMS, KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE IS THEIR TOP PRIORITY.

For that back to school excitement, the University of Central Florida has an amazing security team who strives to keep everyone safe while on their campus—which is no easy feat considering the size of the university and the large amount of students who are on campus every single day. Joseph Souza is the assistant director of security for UCF, and he also wrote our cover story. He discusses the challenges, successes and always changing needs for keeping students safe while they’re there for classes or attending an event such as a football game. It’s a compelling story, and one you’ll definitely want to check out.

For parents sending their kids off to school, whether it’s K-12 or college, knowing that there are people working hard to keep your kids safe offers some peace of mind.
