SCHOOL SAFETY UPDATE
State of Michigan to Provide Site Assessment Funds
On June 10, 2022, the Michigan State Legislature passed funding for Michigan schools to conduct physical Site Assessments to evaluate current safety and security measures, both from a physical and procedural standpoint. SEC is proud to be a company that meets the specific criteria needed to be an approved vendor for this assessment.
HOW IT WORKS
SEC will thoroughly examine the facility, including:
- The surrounding area for hazards that could create security concerns
- Internal and external design features
- Existing technical and physical security measures and gaps in security infrastructure
- Relevant safety and security policies and procedures currently in place
- Testing pertinent emergency equipment such as facility and exterior grounds access control features, as well as cameras and video surveillance systems
- On-site interviews with key staff and leadership
Following the site assessment, SEC will provide a findings report detailing satisfactory existing security measures and also any identified potential vulnerabilities. The report will also include cost-effective strategies to improve safety and security. This custom report is tailored to each facility and suggests actionable next steps, respective to the organization’s means and goals.
Depending on the size of the facility, the site assessment takes approximately three to four (3-4) hours per location. During one of those hours, we ask that an individual with extensive knowledge of the facility be available to provide a tour and answer any policy and procedure questions.
