Educational sites such as schools, libraries, universities, museums etc. are all places that everyone should feel safe however, there are quite a few vulnerabilities at these institutions. Most of these institutions do not have security officers, they rely on their staff to be vigilant while students are walking about, listening to students who may talk about bullying others, or hear of someone planning some violent act. Most educational institutions have a Resource Officer, meaning one person to be the eyes and ears of the institution, they need more help. Having security officers at your educational institution will contribute to a safer learning environment.
