School Security Threat Assessment Program helps Schools Identity Weaknesses in Security after Sandy Hook Shootings

December 18, 2012   Education News
(PRLEAP.COM) Schools around the U.S. have found it difficult to put strong security controls in place because of lack of funding and resistance by parents and staff, who, unfortunately, saw physical security controls as too restrictive.

After the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT, it is critically important that every school do a security threat/risk assessment to see where their own vulnerabilites may be.

To address the situtuation and make it easier to do a simple, effective school security asssessment, Risk and Security LLC has announced a new School Security app, which can run on a tablet, smart phone or laptop. The Risk-Pro for School Security© app is available for only $495.00 for non-profit healthcare organizations ($595.00 for others), and comes with an on-line user guide and free training.

The program looks at the entire school, addressing areas like access control, entry controls, and incident response. The program was developed by Caroline Hamilton with the National Institute of Justice and Eastern Kentucky University to create an easy way for schools to use FEMA 428, How to have Safe Schools.

The web 2.0 Risk-Pro for School Security©, is affordable and simple to use. It includes fully-updated threat databases, and automated web-surveys based on security requirements from FEMA 428.

"With 3-year old twins in my family, I was high motivated to make sure they are safe at their pre-school, and have fielded calls from dozens of security professionals who are worried about their children's school security posture" said security risk expert, Caroline Ramsey-Hamilton.

The Risk-Pro© model has been used for easy software applications with the National Institute of Justice, the U.S. Defense Department,and over hundreds of organizations including schools, universities, hospitals, health plans and government agencies.
