Event Information

Title: CPTED Lessons from School Massacres


Recent events within the U.S. and the world at large have changed the standards of care and best practices for providing security for K-12 schools and higher education facilities. By reviewing the finding of the Stoneman Douglas School Security Commission, specific CPTED recommendations become apparent. The findings address numerous security concerns and standards, including single points of entry, perimeter fencing and controls, gate control, vehicle barriers, access control sites and buildings, public address systems and mass notification, duress buttons, IP phones, video surveillance systems, HVAC system shutdown, glazing, bullet versus break resistance, doors and locking hardware, corridor walls, and safe zones. Join a discussion of the findings and how they can be applied to various learning environments.
