The Secure School Alliance conducted a comprehensive public domain scan of state legislation related to all aspects of school safety and security, including: facility security and assessment requirements, creation and identification of roles and responsibilities for state school safety centers and school safety teams/committees, requirements for school administrators and faculty, allocation of funds for improving school safety and security, and all-hazards emergency planning and preparedness. This work was completed with the support of the Police Foundation and Dr. Erroll Southers.
