US School Security Statistics Reviewed

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Nov 12, 2013

Knowing what security schools used and how those measures have changed over the last decade is quite important, especially given the ongoing concerns about school safety and gun violence. Thankfully a recent 211-page report on school crime and safety report includes statistics on deaths in schools, crimes reported on school grounds, gang activity, alcohol abuse by students and safety and security measures, which will be the focus of this note.

But first, some eye-opening statistics from the report:
