School Security Responses

If not Zero Tolerance, then what? School Resource Officer I received multiple phone calls after the Parkland shooting from parents that wanted to know how I planned to make sure the school would be safe. I believe that school safety is a team effort so I am not alone in securing the school. Being highly visible, relationship with students, and layered team effort of AP, SRO, and Campus Monitors are the main ingredients. School Superintendent Having a police officer, an office of the court at ready access minimizes fear and concern regarding the safeness of the school environment. One area of concern is the overuse of the SRO for matters that are the responsibility of school administrators. The line of authority must be clearly drawn. The SRO should be engaged in matters that have legal implications or recourse.
