The Strategic Safety and Security Group (SSSG) is widely regarded as the foremost authority in providing safety training and services for schools. Our team has been called upon to offer school safety consultation, training, and other safety-related services to numerous governmental organizations and school districts, including the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as multiple public and private schools.
In order to establish a secure and productive learning environment, it is crucial to conduct a thorough evaluation of the school climate, protocols, anti-bullying measures, and physical structures. This is where a school safety assessment comes into play. It is a comprehensive analysis and audit of the school's facilities and strategic approach to identify any potential or existing security issues on campus. During this assessment, our team will communicate with key personnel from the school and district to discuss specific threats and vulnerabilities. After conducting interviews with relevant parties, our team will perform an internal and external security/safety evaluation, as well as assess the overall school climate. We will utilize the nationally recognized Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design Concept (CPTED) to examine the security of all buildings and grounds. The assessment will focus on key factors that have a direct impact on the school's educational mission, student and staff safety, school attendance, and overall campus security, including student bullying.
Strategic Safety and Security Group offers consultation services for school safety and law enforcement, particularly for litigation matters. With our unparalleled experience, we can thoroughly assess every aspect of your case and provide an impartial and expert opinion. Our team of professionals will share their evaluation of the facts based on their extensive training, education, and practical experience. We can also help you determine the strengths and limitations of your litigation strategy and identify any issues that require further investigation during the discovery process.
Our team of experts will conduct a thorough examination of the district's safety and security policies and procedures to enhance and redesign emergency plans. We'll assess all security measures, emergency response and incident plans, and post-incident procedures to identify any areas that require improvement. Our recommendations will focus on enhancing compliance and improving the plan's critical elements, scope, limitations, training quality and frequency, accessibility, usability, and updates.
It is essential to improve your ability to handle emergencies by rehearsing the emergency response procedures specific to your school. By conducting a tabletop exercise, you can recreate an emergency scenario within a relaxed and controlled classroom environment. The primary objective of this exercise is to promote discussion and training on emergency protocols, emphasizing the roles, guidelines, and responsibilities assigned to each individual.
