I downloaded and read this book after reading the news story at Cranberry.com [...] I hope more people figure out how to get involved to help protect their local schools. Administrators don't know everything. Sometimes someone has to point out the obvious.

Like many parents, the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy prompted me to wonder about the safety of my children's school. Are the students and staff prepared for an intruder? Do they have a lock-down procedure? Have they done lock-down drills? Do they have the right locks?

The author, Dave Jabas, has been a commercial locksmith since 1977. He has been called upon to handle high-profile jobs such as securing special command units for the Vancouver Winter Olympics only a few months following the terrorist attacks of 9-11. His expertise has also been called upon from locations all across the world including hospitals in American Samoa, branches of the US Military, Baghdad, Guam, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Dubai, and Vietnam.

Obviously, Dave's experience gives him a very unique perspective on how to help protect students from a school intruder. The book will take less than 20 minutes to read, but it provides valuable information regarding the most reliable equipment for a lock-down situation.

Seconds save lives when an intruder attacks! Does your school have the right locks to stay secure? This inexpensive guide helps ensure your school is properly equipped. Dave provides his email address and offers to review pictures of the locks in your school building. He will personally evaluate them and help you figure out your best options for keeping students safe.

Dave's time is valuable. His expertise is usually expensive. But, he's donating his time to keep our children safe.

Reports on how the perpetrator gained access to Sandy Hook will remain conflicting for a while. Certainly, it sounds like he was a recognized individual and was therefore trusted.

Lots of ideas are being discussed for how we can protect our children in schools and daycare settings. As a parent, I'm not only concerned with armed intruders, but with anyone entering the school with bad intentions. Gun control and mental health interventions are fine, but they take time to implement. And who knows if they'll actually work when push comes to shove. I want to know my child's school is as secure as it can possibly be *right now*!

In this book, I learned the easiest and fastest way to take added precautions is updating school locks with modern electrified systems where lockdowns can be controlled by remote control. While they won't keep out an intruder who really wants to get in, modern lock systems will make it extremely difficult. And even delaying an intruder by a few minutes can allow emergency responders time to get there. Seconds count, and the right locks can save lives.

Dave Jabas has written an extremely practical book here. He shows you pictures of exactly what locks are appropriate for intruder situations.

But the best part of this book is that you can actually take pictures of your child's school doors, email or text the pictures to the author, and he will let you know if those are the appropriate locks, or if there are more sophisticated upgrades.

So even if parents or teachers know nothing about locks or security systems, with this book we can make a difference!

I'm sharing this book with every parent and teacher I know.

This is a primer in security hardware for the lay person. It is a good place to start if you want to understand physical security options for educational environments. Armed with this information you will be able to tell quickly if your child's school and classrooms are equipped with the correct mechanical locks. There are many other options available for school security that are not covered here but I believe that given the cost of comprehensive electronic systems and budget realities in this country, simple mechanical upgrades and common sense can dramatically increase school safety quickly and affordably. This is information everybody needs, now!
