University and School Security Training Trends
Find out how your campus and public safety department compare with your peer institutions on security and emergency preparedness education.
According to the latest research from Campus Safety, a significant percentage school and university public safety officers and non-security staff need more training.
More than half of the respondents from institutions of higher education and K-12 schools who particpated in Campus Safety’s latest survey on training say they are “somewhat unsatisfied” (32%) or “very unsatisfied” (23%) with the amount of safety and security training their campus/district administrators, teachers, faculty and staff receive. Nearly a third (31%) of education respondents have some level of dissatisfaction with the amount of training that their public safety officers receive.
Title IX is another area of significant vulnerability for K-12 and higher education campuses. Only 59% of respondents say their campus or district has a Title IX coordinator, 14% say they don’t have one and 22% say they don’t know. By law, every school and university must designate at least one employee who is responsible for coordinating the school’s compliance with Title IX.
So, how does your institution measure up?
