Help protect our nation's future

There are approximately 130,000 public and private K-12 schools in the United States. Recent incidents of school violence have made the protection of these schools more vital than ever before. Schools must constantly balance security measures with the need to create welcoming and nurturing environments while controlling costs under increasing budget sensitivity.
To help ensure the safety and security of our nation's schools, each should have a comprehensive security assessment or survey conducted by trained and certified school security assessment specialists.
