NAPCO Security Technologies has announced that it has joined the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) program as part of its commitment to help provide more school and campus solutions, in the face of the escalating violence.
PASS K-12 is a program that offers comprehensive information and objective guidelines for securing educational facilities, created by a multidisciplinary team spanning security, education, infrastructure and corporate sectors.
PASS includes tools and insights needed for public safety and security professionals, school administrators and boards, to work in concert to implement a tiered security protection approach, from inside to the outer perimeter.
“NAPCO’s joining PASS was a natural for us – knowledge is power and it’s especially critical when it comes to school security,” said Stephen Spinelli, NAPCO’s Senior Vice President of Sales.
NAPCO Security Technologies and its divisions, Marks USA, Alarm Lock and Continental Access have developed a wide range of security technology solutions to fit classrooms and campuses for intrusion and commercial fire alarms and reporting, school and classroom locking and access control, video, visitor and security management.
“As part of our PASS K-12 partnership, we will now be developing new security training courses and incorporating the PASS K-12 program, taught by certified NAPCO trainers, for security providers and campus security professionals,” the company said in a statement.
