Critical incidents require an effective and timely response and studies show that reducing emergency response time can save lives. In this session, we will discuss SchoolGuard, an emergency alert system, that places a "panic button" in the hands of all teachers and staff members by means of a smartphone app to create a direct link to the closest law enforcement officers during an active school shooting incident.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. How the SchoolGuard system compliments 911 centers.
  2. The many features and benefits of having the SchoolGuard service.
  3. How the SchoolGuard service will drastically reduce police response time.
  4. The nationwide support of SchoolGuard by the Hero911 Network of police officers.
  5. The overall cost effectiveness of the SchoolGuard service.
