Those involved with schools face a challenge. Parents, board members, staff, administrators, students and the community share a common desire to reduce the potential for violence and other unwanted behavior on school sites.

The frustration comes in balancing the need for increased security with what are, in many districts, shrinking budgets. To develop an effective security program, the needs of each site or type of site must be evaluated to determine the most effective policies, procedures and systems to provide the desired level of security.

An effective school security program is comprised of many elements. Only when these components are properly assembled does the program provide the needed security. The failure to approach security in a systematic manner results in potential gaps in protection and the ineffective deployment of resources.

As specialists in school security, Inter/Action Associates understands the unique needs of school districts. We have helped districts all over the United States to design new programs or enhance existing ones to provide an optimum level of security in a cost-efficient manner.
