Launched in February 2013 as a special edition of e-TechBeat focusing on school safety and expanded to its own domain in May 2013, School serves as a clearinghouse of information and contacts for law enforcement and other public safety officials to prepare, respond and recover as they work to keep schools as safe as possible.

This site provides information on:

Government organizations and publications. Professional associations. University research and resources. NIJ services. NLECTC products and services. Networking opportunities. Original articles on success stories. Reposts of news articles from around the country.

Success stories originally posted on this site are periodically republished as volumes in the Sharing Ideas and Resources to Keep Our Nation’s Schools Safe! series. All four volumes in the series are available for download on this site.

Working together, we can make schools safer and communities stronger.
