There has been a lot of discussion about gun control and that may or may not help the problem of shootings and schools but one thing that is for sure is that when an incident happens the police and swat teams need information to to get the situation under control. Typically, this is done by the authorities questioning witnesses at the locations and basing their decisions from that which may be outdated, there are also tools like portable cameras and bots but those can be detected and in some cases put the operator in danger. The lives of the people that protect us are very important. We need more solutions. Security 101 will introduce you to some regarding prevention and actionable intelligence.
For prevention, we know that a lot of schools can lock down the school in case of an infiltration, but the faculty and students are still inside dealing with danger. Some areas in a school could have access control devices used to limit the intruder from having access and keep students in a somewhat safer environment, such as a classroom without access control. Theses devices can monitor if an area has been breached and authorities could be made aware of that increasing the likelihood that they will be able to narrow down the location of the intruder.
For a tactical advantage, cameras can be placed throughout the school and video can be transmitted via the web granting real time data to the authorities. Real time data has the potential to speed up the process of apprehending the intruder and maybe even saving lives. Time is very important in times like these and it's too late to make a decision about this after the fact, these procedures need to be placed in advance. A series of access control breaches may tell the authorities where the intruders are heading. Security 101 has many education security solutions.
