Hi my name is Jeff Hovis, I am a retired Police Officer/School Resource Officer (SRO), i myself experienced a shooting in my school Feb 5th 2010 in Madison Al (Discovery Middle School). please take a moment to look at my site. I know since Sandy Hook you have been bombarded with ideas of school safety. I think i have a plan that will secure our schools 95% intruder free, no need to arm teachers of high tech equipment. My plan secures the front entrance and office/staff and restricts the movement of visitors/intruder with no where to go but out! It also seperates them from the student area and population without the prison feeling. Other entrance doors can be secured also and my plan implements help from teachers/parents and students from high school, middle and even elementary kids (with adult supervision). Its not a childs fix but the same fix that a contractor would do but by utilizing volunteer rsources, thousands of $'s can be saved. I also have other ideas about lockdowns, classroom windows and using items already in the school as safety measures. With my plan, Alabama could be the a model state for having a Intruder Free School system. Thanks for your consideration, yours truely, Jeff Please visit us on Facebook Common Sense Solutions, like us and share.
