National School Shield Visits Oregon Town To Beef Up Security

posted on September 29, 2017

The town of Glide, Ore., is receiving a free boost to school safety, courtesy of the National School Shield initiative funded by The NRA Foundation. 

Through the Security Assessor Training program, about two dozen law-enforcement officers from around the state are receiving valuable training, which they can then apply to their local middle and high school, identifying vulnerabilities and recommending new security protocols to address them. According to The News-Review, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office requested the free training after the head of the local Friends of NRA chapter approached principal Kristina Haug about it. 

"We look at vulnerability assessments to help them better serve their schools and find weaknesses in the overall security from outside in," explained National School Shield instructor Darrel Schenck. "It's also a way to build the relationships between the law enforcement and the schools in the community."
