The Wisconsin Electronic Security Association is taking a leadership role nationwide in ensuring the safety of children, teachers and school personnel.
The Electronic Security association (ESA), has completed a comprehensive resource for school officials who are developing or adding to their electronic security systems as part of their overall school security plan. This resource, “Electronic Security Guidelines for Schools” is a document meant to inform and advise school decision makers about their options, and the critical role of electronic security.
A conference for the live presentation of “Electronic Security Guidelines for Schools” will take place May 19, 2014 at the Country Springs Conference Center. Security Industry Experts with specific experience in securing K-12 schools will lead a series of panel discussions. Keynote speaker is Officer Mitchell L. Ross, Milwaukee Police Department, Training & Outreach Officer, Intelligence Fusion Center, presenting and Intelligence Briefing enabling attendees to recognize and identify potential terrorist activity and the proper actions to take to mitigate threats. Panelists include Infrastructure Protection Officer, Jeffrey Watts, Milwaukee Police Depart., Intelligence Fusion Center/SE WI Analysis Center, and three members from the Panel of Subject matter Experts who participated in the creation and development of the “Electronic Security Guidelines for Schools”.
The document isn’t designed primarily for industry professionals, but as a reference for school administrators when working to assess and determine appropriate security strategies. The goal is to create a smarter customer – to help school officials and administrators make sense of all the information and best practices – and to make sure ESA members are up on the latest information in school security.
Chief of Police, Michael Kehoe, Newtown, Connecticut, gave his endorsement of this documents at a presentation to the members of ESA stating “This is a very comprehensive approach to security. Each school is unique: different locations, ages of kids, physical layout, and so on. This approach lets the assessment be individualized. I definitely support it.”
