School Shooting Prevention: Pop-A-Lock® Offers Schools Free Security Audits

Pop-A-Lock offers sincere condolences to the families that lost a child in the fatal school shooting that occurred last week at an Oregon high school.

Although these tragic cases cannot fully be prevented from taking place, Pop-A-Lock – the most trusted team of security professionals in the nation—pledges to support school districts throughout the United States by offering free security audits to analyze  schools’ security systems to protect its students, teachers and administrators.

“We’re greatly saddened by the recent rash of school shootings throughout our country,” said Pop-A-Lock Director of Operations, Rob Reynolds. “This violence is senseless and can be significantly mitigated by readily-available security technologies in the marketplace today.”

In wake of previous school shootings, Pop-A-Lock recognized the need for security audits in schools to help prevent tragic events like this one. As a result, in 2013, Pop-A-Lock started offering free school security audits to schools throughout the country.

The program provides:

  • A comprehensive online checklist of physical infrastructure security needs
  • On-site assessments by a Pop-A-Lock security professional available free of charge on the company’s Website at: http://www.popalock.com
  • Insight into the most basic security measures, such as key access control and sophisticated technology such as perimeter surveillance
  • Company technicians available to perform a comprehensive facility security assessment on-site

“Pop-A-Lock is committed to working with schools across the country to keep our children, teachers, and administrators safe,” Reynolds added.

There is a huge range of interventions that can be deployed in any facility, including K-12’s, to improve security measures. These range from establishment of protocols, rehearsal drills, evacuation plans, lockdown procedures, identification systems, and beyond. Some schools are deploying RFID tracking devices and readers throughout the facility to track student movement in order to make their attendance reporting more robust and automated.

School administrators can contact a local Pop-A-Lock franchise at 1-800-POPALOCK, to schedule a walk-through with your maintenance team to go door-to-door and make notes of specifically what areas need attention. By taking the time to assess your facilities’ security, you will increase the life safety and security for the students and staff.
