Boise, Idaho, October 30, 2006: As the United States struggles to cope with the recent wave of school violence, school administrators face a critical choice. They can either implement strategies to improve the perception of school security or actually improve school security. In other words, they can attempt to feel safe or be safe.

Factor Security & Continuity has launched Proactive School Security (PSS) to help school administrators understand and mitigate the unique threats each of their schools face. PSS is a systematic, process-driven methodology that addresses school security and disaster risks in a holistic manner.

“The Department of Justice recommended schools take a process-based approach to evaluating their risks over seven years ago while lamenting the fact few schools do. Implementing PSS can make the difference for our schools to not only feel safe, but be safe,” says Factor president Aaron Gehlken.
