Even Good Safety Programs Can Miss the Basics
Assessments by neighboring campus officials, however, can bridge these gaps.
It is almost inevitable that an informed and careful outside evaluation of a campus safety program will reveal that simple and extremely common strategies have been overlooked. This is often true even for campus safety programs that are very comprehensive and top flight in most regards.
