School districts looking to private security firms

On January 3, 2013 by staciehannaford

Since 1989 school shootings have been on the rise in the US.  Before that time, gunmen typically only had one or two intended targets in mind or they killed a small number of people.  Nowadays, the number of deceased victims from the shooters has escalated dramatically.  We all remember Columbine in Littleton, Colorado on April 20, 1999 which resulted in 13 innocent deaths, but did you know about the Beslan school hostage crisis in Russia from September 1st-3rd, 2004 which resulted in 385 deaths and 783 injured?

After the latest attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut last month, school districts, law enforcement and politicians are trying to find way to make sure our most important assets – our children – are kept safe.  The challenge is local police departments do not have the funding or manpower to place on-duty police officers in every school.  Schools districts across the nation are looking to private security firms to help protect their campuses.  One security firm in Jefferson City, MO says that private security can provide a more cost-effective solution that provides the same amount training.

We need to protect our children as they are our future!
