How we do it
Pennsylvania School Safety and Security Assessments
As an approved Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency as a School Safety & Security Assessment Provider, LARGO Consulting Services provides assessments per the guidelines established under the School Safety and Security Assessment Criteria. Since 2018, we have been working with schools throughout Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania School Safety and security assessment “is a strategic evaluation of a school entity’s facilities and programs used to identify potential safety and security threats. Under Section 1303-B of the PA Public School Code, assessments are to include consideration of the safety and security of a school entity’s physical environment, the school entity’s climate and behavioral health environment, and all related policies and training.”
As part of the assessment process, LARGO utilizes “pre-existing, established school safety assessment materials, and relying on the expertise of the Committee and related Workgroups, this assessment criterion is a compilation of best practices as determined and adopted by the Committee in 2018, and revised and adopted on February 24, 2021.”
Understanding that each school is different and that a one size fits all solution is not the best assessment approach, LARGO Consulting Service applies our physical security assessment process VIZION20XX. Our assessment process was developed as a comprehensive roadmap to evaluate and future-proof our client’s security and safety programs, electronic security systems, emergency preparedness plans, and security force management practices. LARGO provides clients with this security risk and vulnerability assessment and recommendation process based on best practices, emerging trends, and the latest security technologies.
Additionally, we don’t hold identified risks and vulnerabilities until the final report; we share the “GOTCHA” when we discover it, so our clients can take corrective action immediately to reduce risk and keep their students safe and secure.
