Controlling Crime in the School: A Complete Security Handbook for Administrators.
Vestermark, Seymour D., Jr.; Blauvelt, Peter D.
This guidebook offers school administrators a number of tested approaches to solving security problems that plague most school districts today. It suggests that establishing a program is the most effective way to take control of events and attempt to prevent as well as limit the effects of criminal acts in schools. The topics covered include identifying security needs, building a school community, choosing a security program, designating types of personnel needed, planning, dealing with school crime, controlling vandalism and bomb threats, confronting the drug problem, managing crises, controlling mass disruptions, calling the police, and reinforcing the program with student help and legal measures.
