Florida Safe School Design Guidelines.

Web Abstract: 
These guidelines begin with the assumption that proper design and management of the physical environment can help prevent criminal behavior on campuses. The manual considers design and maintenance issues beginning with the largest level of concern, the site, and proceeding toward the most specific, systems and equipment. In between these two, each area of building design and interior spaces is covered. Bullet points summarize the most significant elements and direct the user to the corresponding design principle in the Florida Building Code. Results of surveys, field investigations, and interviews concerning security design and practices, incidence of crimes, and attitudes are included. Recommendations drawn from these results are linked to the guidelines. (Includes 100 references and a listing of 40 organizations for additional resources.)
