Safer Schools and Hospitals Toolkit

Web Abstract: 
This British toolkit is an easy-to-use template for security risk assessment in schools. The practical guide helps one understand the reasons that crimes and incidents occur in a school site or building. It provides information on how to tackle these problems through design or management of the premises. The guide provides a step-by-step approach on how to: 1)Gather crime data; 2) Identify vulnerabilities by walking the site; 3) Model surveillance: identify areas that are overseen or well-used and areas that are hidden from view; 4) Assess which risks are most immediate; 5) Develop long and short term strategies to address the problems; 6) Implement the strategies. Includes case studies of a primary school and a secondary school.
