The background story can be found here. Several years ago there was a movement to remove decrease the amount of security in public schools. In December, 2006, Mitigation Journal told you about research that indicated school security may actually be doing more harm than good. See School Security Should Go Over the Top (Mitigation Journal 12/06).

We continue to support our position that schools, hospitals, shopping malls and similar locations are soft targets. These soft target locations can also be locations of critical infrastructure and need to be protected. The problem in this situation seems to be that the planning and delivery of the training scenario.

The video from segment 1 and segment 2 of this topic can be found on mitigationjournal.org from our recording of Mitigation Journal #208.
