School safety incidents are always very scary for the students, teachers and faculty who are involved, but a proper security system and locking technology can ensure the safety of all children over the course of the year.
A recent incident in Rome, New York, is the perfect example of a proper locking system. According to NBC's News Channel 2, a Rome school went into lockdown procedures after a bullet casing was discovered on school grounds. The school entrances were immediately locked and guarded to ensure that no intruders were allowed inside. Police searched the school, and no hostile criminals were found inside thanks to the efficient lock system and quick actions by the school staff. Lockers were also searched for any evidence of firearms.
School safety should be the top priority for every educational facility across the country, and with the right locks in place, students can learn in a safe, comfortable environment. Parents will not have to worry about potential threats, and in an emergency, a school can be shut down and protected within seconds.
In a town like Rome, an excellent security system can mean the difference in emergency situations, and schools in the area should consider investing in protective technology.
