Effective Strategies for School Security.
Blauvelt, Peter D.
This handbook offers administrators specific advice on developing the skills, knowledge, and techniques needed for coping with problems of school crime and violence. The guide begins by advising administrators that having security information available at all times helps determine the climate of the school. Instructions are given for preparing written security reports. In addition, a standard category of offense code and an incident reporting form are provided. The remainder of the handbook deals with the following specific types of violence or vandalism: arson, assault, bomb incidents, burglary, drugs/narcotics/alcohol, extortion, larceny/theft, robbery, sex offenses, trespassing, vandalism, and weapons. The offense is defined, subcategories listed, and prevention strategies, response procedures, and investigative techniques provided in the form of a checklist of instructions. The concluding chapter deals with hostage/terrorist/childnapping and search and seizure. Reference materials and a bibliography are included. (MLF)
