School Security Security in schools has dramatically changed since the shooting at Columbine High School in 1999. Before then school security was almost non-existent because there was never a threat and in today’s world it might be a leading problem. School security is vastly different from what it used to be before all these school shootings, now it is essential this nation have steps in place in an attempt to prevent more shootings. The Columbine shooting was an event where two students were bullied in their years at this high school, then proceeded to get back at everyone by shooting up the school. Most people believe that the shooters are loners, but research of all the school shootings show most have a daily experience of being enmeshed in social friction. This meaning that each of the shooters want to be accepted by a group in society, and end up experiencing failure to be accepted along with the attention they seek. Furthermore, media plays a huge role in these shooting both good and bad. The bad side of the media interacting with the shootings is that they give the shooter the attention they are seeking. On the other hand, the good side is it brings awareness to other students around the nation to report anything that might be a threat. Shooters do not just make a split decision to do this, they have a long process of planning that takes around six months to work up. An effective way that can prevent the shootings is the student resource officers in the schools where they can build a relationship with all the students so they feel comfortable with telling them if they feel threatened in anyway by a student. Yet if funding gets low the first thing to go is usually the student resource officer, which increases the risk around the school. The most recent large scale school shooting was Sandy Hook and this horrific event brought light to the subject of schools getting more hi-tech security. The year after protection in schools around America grew largely, but the money for the school has ridden a rollercoaster, rising a year after a major attack, then falling as the memories fade. Even though schools have upped their security since Sandy Hook there have been 74 more school shootings. This makes us believe that the protection we put up is still not as effective as we thought it would be. Nationwide, about one out of every 4.5 million kids in school between the ages of five and eighteen dies from a school shooting. This showing that even though there are a lot of school shootings, it is highly unlikely that one may happen at ones school. There are things that schools need to do in order to help the cause more. For example, all schools should have a higher quality no bullying program to
to spy on teachers, adding: "We don't need to install CCTV to watch teachers teaching. If the head wanted to spy on teachers, all he has to do is walk down the corridor." Sir Peter said: "The cameras have been installed primarily for security reasons. For this school to be successful, first and foremost we need discipline in the classroom. It is up to the headmaster and his staff as to when or how the cameras are used for other reasons, such as training or for inspectors." (http://www.telegraph.co…
It took me nearly fourteen years to understand that I am mostly determined by the numbers that are awarded to me: my social security number, my student ID, my test scores, grades, weight, height, age. All of these define me to the people who decide my future. The government, school officials. These numbers tell them what I am: An average student, fourteen year old girl, five foot two, and an eighth grader. All of this is true, but there is a truth that tends to be ignored when it comes to my numbers…

Imagine this, its a normal day at school and the day is dragging on. Your class is
almost over and you’re waiting for the bell to ring. The bell rings and everybody pours out
into the hallway as usual. You’re almost to your next class and suddenly “BAM… BAM…
BAM…” something that sounds like gunfire rings out through the corridor you’re in, and
echos all the way down the hall. Everyone is screaming and the 8th graders are trampling
down the smaller kids and yo…
isn’t monitored. That’s the main reason that some schools did locker searches because of the security problem. In fact, monitoring by using random searches isn’t the only answer because it’s acknowledged as invading the privacy of students. The dilemma is how not to only keep student from danger, but to also respect their privacy. The problem in reality has lots of other solutions besides locker searches such as using trained police dog and using security measures.
First of all, lock searching shouldn’t…
Over the past several years, an epidemic of school violence has overtaken our nation. From school shootings like the disaster in Columbine, to daily bomb threats around the country, they are becoming more and more common.

Overview of Security Management
Within the concentration of Security Management or Security Administration (used synonymously), I will be looking at the bigger picture, or quite simply, a general overview of the physical security measures businesses and government put in place. I feel this topic suits my major, being that I will open my own Security Company after obtaining my Bachelors in Business Administration. I have previously taken many Criminal Justice courses and also an “Intro to Security Administration”…
need for security is becoming a topic of discussion. The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut has brought about the reexamination of the rules and regulations that are set in place at this moment pertaining to firearms. The reexamination will result in some kind of change, but the question is what kind. There are two major sides at conflict over this contentious topic. One suggests that the gun-free zones in schools be repealed and replaced by the firearm training of school personnel…
