Lack of Preparedness for Critical Incidents

Improving Campus Safety Policies During the Mass-shooting Era (Colleges and K-12)

Critical incidents, by their very nature, pose a threat to campus communities and first responders. Therefore, it is imperative that campus administrators and police leaders develop comprehensive incident management protocols and follow-up strategies to help reduce the impact of cataclysmic crises on campus such as shooting attacks. Today, many campuses remain vulnerable to gun violence because they have not fully developed their campus security infrastructures and response protocols.

Notwithstanding the strategic efforts made by larger institutions to prepare for violent campus attacks, many campuses remain underprepared to deal with shooting violence on campuses due to budgetary restraints, inconsistent campus security planning and policies, and vulnerabilities in infrastructure design. As a result of these operational deficiencies, many campuses still heavily rely on outside police agencies for support in responding to critical incidents. Law enforcement support from outside agencies for critical incidents is guaranteed by memorandums of understanding (MOU) or mutual aid agreements.
