Dear PoliceOne Member,

In the two years since the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, there has been much debate about how to improve safety in our nation’s schools.

Discussion has centered around arming teachers, implementing surveillance and security technologies, and the role of “red flag laws” in confiscating firearms from individuals accused of being a danger to themselves or others.

One constant throughout all these discussions is the importance school resource officers (SROs) play in protecting our children every school day. In today’s newsletter, we share five actions SROs can take to improve campus safety and detail how the Milestones Project in Arizona enables LEOs and community stakeholders to implement a proactive strategy toward school safety.

As we pause to remember those who lost their lives two years ago today, we know that you are all actively preparing to prevent such an incident from happening in your community. PoliceOne is committed to be your partner on that journey and deliver the training you need to help keep our children safe.
