School Security Services

In February 2018, an active shooter opened fire in Stone Douglas High School in Parkland Florida, making it the 25th active shooter event in an US elementary, middle or high school since the infamous Columbine shooting. In light of these unfortunate statistics, and violent attacks that have occurred in America’s schools, the task of developing a safety and security plan can be overwhelming. When you hire a school safety & security consultant, professional experience, background and work ethos is key to a successful relationship.

At TOCCOA Security Consulting, our team brings decades of experience in school safety, law enforcement, executive protection, U.S. armed forces, national security and intelligence. We serve public and private schools (K-12, post-secondary) of all sizes and understand the responsibilities associated with preparing, training and equipping school administrators, educators and security personnel.

TOCCOA Security & Consulting desires to help you create a tailored security and safety plan that is specific to your school’s security needs. Contact a member of our team about the school security services that you require, and we will work with you on a custom training solution.

What We Offer

TOCCOA Security Consulting offers unique services and custom training, as well as, school security-related products that are technologically advanced, easy-to-use and budget-friendly.

The key components of our services focus on five areas: Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. We initiate each project by conducting complimentary threat assessments, followed by safety procedure assessments, developing a crisis response plan, developing a emergency management plan, establishing a response team, developing school safety training protocols and conducting training exercises.

Knowing what you need to reduce risk and to protect your assets requires a willingness to recognize your vulnerabilities.

Site Threat Assessments / Assessments of School Safety Procedures

  • The TOCCOA Threat Assessment service identifies and ranks the vulnerabilities of your security plan, your physical assets and extra-curricular events. Our threat assessments also identify the possibilities in reducing consequences and improving your ability to manage future incidents.

Security Resource Officers (SRO)

  • The TOCCOA Security Consulting team is comprised of personnel from around the United States who have experiences worldwide in protecting both human and physical assets. We can assist you in training and providing the right personnel to meet your security needs.

Crisis Management & Response

  • Our team will review all safety and security policies and procedures in place, including crisis response and event protocols. We will evaluate all security, emergency action/incident plans, as well as post-incident response procedures. Our response goal is to develop more effective methods to execute emergency procedures, through routine training and accessible reference materials.

Emergency Management Planning

  • Emergency Management training helps you to be prepared and avoid reactive responses. Fear, anxiety and missteps can be significantly reduced when your school routinely addresses emergency procedures. TOCCOA will assist you in writing an effective Emergency Operation Plan (EOP).

Active Shooter Training

  • According to the FBI, in 63 incidents where the duration of the incident could be ascertained, 44 (69.8%) of 63 incidents ended in 5 minutes or less, with 23 ending in 2 minutes or less. The Department of Homeland Security reports the average Law Enforcement response time to an active shooter event is 18 minutes. Even when law enforcement was present or able to respond within a few minutes, staff/students/teachers often had to make life and death decisions. Active Shooter training is critical and school staff, personnel and students alike need to engage in training and discussions on active shooter scenarios.
