In The News This Week
This week in industry news, Campus Safety shares how schools can improve campus security by implementing several easy-to-adopt school safety ideas. The Boward County League of Cities' School and Community Public Safety Task Force published over 100 school security recommendations, including several overarching principals that are particularly relevant to school officials across the country.

- There are usually many different opportunities for prevention and intervention in school safety emergencies and thus the challenge is ensuring that layers of protection are woven in such a way that the failure of one point may be caught at another
There's no single approach to school safety that works every campus, but some of these ideas are so easily achievable that officials should at least consider them for their facilities. Campus Safety shares 12 security ideas you can implement immediately.
