Plan the courses of action to implement on a routine, ongoing basis to secure the school from criminal threats originating from both inside and outside the school. This includes efforts done in conjunction with law enforcement personnel.
The planning team should consider the following when developing its goals, objectives, and courses of action:
|Natural Surveillance||Arranging physical features to maximize visibility.|
|Natural access control||Guiding people with signage, well-marked entrances and exits, and landscaping while limiting access to certain areas by using real or symbolic barriers.|
|Territoriality reinforcement||Clearly delineating space, expressing pride and ownership, and creating a welcoming environment.|
|Management and maintenance||Ensuring building services function properly and safely, and the exterior is properly maintained and organized with landscaping and plantings maintained and trimmed.|
