Public safety personnel or other school personnel who have extensive contact with our students are in the best position to identify unusual packages, suspicious substances, and people who are acting suspiciously. However, they need to acquire skills in what to look for and how to respond skills that can be acquired through rigorous emergency planning, regular emergency testing and drills, and extensive training. Specifically, school personnel must engage in the four activities included in the ongoing screening process: assessing, identifying, evaluating, and acting.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are supporting several major initiatives to improve the capability of agencies to respond to terrorist incidents. This Site Protection through Observational Techniques (SPOT) course is one of those major initiatives. It is designed to provide awareness-level training to public safety and school personnel.
During this course, participants will be provided with an overview of security operations that can be used to protect assets (i.e., schools and students) from terrorist acts.
