IACP launches 4 school safety training courses

The courses, for police and school officials alike, are designed to emphasize the importance of preparedness in an emergency

By PoliceOne Staff

IACP and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention have launched four introductory level courses designed to emphasize the importance of preparedness and response efforts in an emergency situation.

The courses come in the wake of several active shooter incidents, most recently the Newtown, Conn., massacre, which took the lives of 20 children and six administrators.

The courses, titled, “Assessing School Safety,” “Forming Your Safe School Planning Team,” “Preparing for a School Crisis,” and “Responding to a School Crisis,” are self-paced and can be taken separately or combined.

Each one provides guidance for enhancing school safety, and is targeted to law enforcement, school officials, and allied stakeholders who are tasked with ensuring school safety., according to an IACP release

Training topics include:

             Identifying needs, gaps, and strategies to perform a comprehensive school safety assessment

•             Identifying potential members, roles, and responsibilities for a safe school planning team

•             Revising or creating preparedness strategies within a school safety plan

             Developing crisis response strategies and incorporating them into a school safety plan
