Safe & Welcoming Schools

There are many opportunities to enhance school safety and security, both through the use of security technologies such as access control, fire safety and video surveillance systems; and through the physical design features of the school building itself. Learn more about Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and the use of other security technologies that can make your school a safer place for students and staff. Photographs combined with stories from schools across the United States and abroad will be used to illustrate how even high levels of school security can be achieved without creating a prison-like environment. Find out how to soften the visual and emotional impact of necessary school security measures while creating a more secure but warm and friendly school.
