School Security. Educational Management Review Series Nunber 23.
School security encompasses a larger area than it did a decade ago. Whereas it used to imply the need to provide a safe educational environment for students, it now connotes the protection of all school personnel, facilities, and equipment. Moreover, the concern in school security has moved from accidental to deliberate losses. The single greatest problem is crime--crimes against people and crimes against property. This review discusses the development of an adequate school security program: identifying security problems, selecting a security director, establishing policies, and instituting preventive measures. Types of prevention covered are manufactured devices, guard personnel, and student and community volunteers. (Author)
