In August 2023, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in partnership with the U.S. Departments of Education (ED), Health and Human Services (HHS), and Justice (DOJ), launched a public awareness campaign
to highlight federal school safety resources and evidence-based practices available through SchoolSafety.gov
. The campaign will educate school administrators and personnel, teachers, parents and guardians, and state and local government officials about school safety resources available at SchoolSafety.gov. SchoolSafety.gov offers more than 485 resources across nine topic areas to help inform and support schools as they develop, evaluate, and implement school safety plans, procedures, and programs.
supports situational prevention, investigations, and incident management through the implementation of security technology and workflow processes for improved monitoring, incident management and ultimately violence and crime prevention. By applying a combination of advanced video analytics, enhanced monitoring processes and workflow automation, schools can better direct security personnel, leadership and stakeholders, and funding to situations where they are needed most. This also frees up time for more engagement, deterrence, and investigations.
In the wake of the nationwide SchoolSafety.gov initiative, Convergint
emerges as a pivotal player in fortifying school security. The company’s expertise lies in seamlessly integrating advanced technology and efficient workflows to furnish schools with potent tools for bolstering situational awareness, incident management, and the prevention of violence and crime.
