Random acts of violence continue to plague public schools. School shooters are still gaining access to buildings and encountering little resistance as they carry out their attack. Single entry points are designed to make it more difficult to gain entry. But, propped doors bypass critical security systems making it almost impossible to protect those inside. This session focuses on common failures of the front door buzzer system and safeguards to put in place.

Learning Objectives:
Explain how to conduct inspections of door closing mechanisms
Recognize human body language to educate the controller of the front door buzzer
Describe how to link internal camera systems with local emergency responders
Summarize how to implement employee and visitor background check management systems
