These questions represent the most common and fundamental components to be considered when developing and effective school security program. In reviewing your results it is important to bear in mind that security is a situational discipline and no two security programs are the same, nor should they be. Every security program must contain effective strategies to reasonably mitgate the threat of your unique threat environment. This test also represents some of the components that are addressed when SMSI Inc. conducts a comprehensive Security Assessment. With the reality of limited resources, security programs must be designed to mitgate threats within the confines of cost-efficient budgeting.
