Safety & Security

Safety & Security in the K-12 environment is a goal of every school.  The Virginia Center for School and Campus Safety (VCSCS) wants to provide information, tools, and training to all our constituents to improve and enhance safety and security in schools.  Each year, schools across the Commonwealth participate in the annual Safety Audit process- which helps evaluate safety and security in their schools.  This section of the website features details about the audit and the various components of the audit, including important deadlines for schools.  VCSCS is also working with the Virginia Department of Education to develop training for schools and divisions to streamline the audit process.

An integral part of safety and security is school resource officers and school security officers.  Please visit the school security officer webpage to find out more information about this Virginia program.  Additionally, check back for ongoing information about threat assessment, bomb threats, the school-police partnership, and other important topics to K-12 Safety & Security.
