Taking Action: Creating Model Emergency Management Plans for Schools, Institutions of Higher Education and Houses of Worship

Future Ideas of Security for Schools

Every school or learning institution can have a formal plan of action. The problem with plans are they always go down the drain. I learned this in the Military. The training we received was so dry and boring sometimes looking back. Most importantly drilling and repetition is the perfect plan.It is human nature to freeze up in desperate times, but with so much practice it becomes second nature. We need the teachers and staff during time off and the school year to get trained by law enforcement and former military and keep training to sustain any happenings in a classroom, or any environment in a school setting if a catastrophe were to happen. Yes, I think it would be a great idea to have a small security team by that I mean either law enforcement officers, or private security contractors . The law enforcement agency's habitat is meant for the streets we live on not to be stuck in schools. An idea can be for security to beef up in schools by forming the proper plan without exposing 9mm pistols or anything to alarm the students. The cop or security guard that is patrolling the school should be in regular civilian attire and be apart of the school staff. The security staff of the school develops and enhances drills, times, escape plans, fire plans, or any type of emergency situation. I think in the future all of us will be hearing about "school security". If it is proposed the right way it can work to benefit our children and teenagers today.
