As a school resource officer, administrator or educator your first responsibility is to ensure your students, staff, faculty, parents and guests are always safe and secure.
Prevention/ Mitigation – addresses what the school can do to reduce or eliminate risk to life and property
Preparedness – focuses on the process of planning for the worst case scenario
Response – devotes to the steps to take during crisis or emergency
Recovery – deals with how to restore the learning and teaching environment after crisis and emergency
Good plans are never finished. They can be updated based on experience, research and changing vulnerabilities. School may be in various stages of planning.
It is important to acknowledge that some SCHOOL CRIMES and VIOLENT BEHAVIORS are more serious than others and therefore have a greater impact on a school. Those acts that cause fear and anxiety on the part of the victim and community, as well as the general population, require special attention by school authorities.
Know where students tend to hang out, and if possible, obtain the name and phone numbers of the establishment they frequent, and report it to OSB and/or SSU.
More people are injured while attempting to break up fights and assaults than during any other type of activity. This generally occurs when the person trying to break up the fight makes several mistakes.
Adults tend to run to fights and once on the scene immediately jump into the middle of the fight and start to pull the combatants apart. This action offers the fighter that rare opportunity to take a “free shot” at the intervener.
By not taking a few moments upon arrival at the fight scene to do quick analysis of what is occurring, you attempt to intervene without knowing who the combatants are, or if there is weapon involved, or who is winning, or what stage the fight is in, or if this event was staged for your benefit. All of this information is important in helping you decide the best course of action to take.
While the Office of Safety and Security Unit is responsible for coordinating campus safety and security, the primary responsibility for crime prevention and personal safety rests with each individual.
Keep the important telephone numbers in your wallet or save it in your mobile phone directory.
Simple safety and security measures make it too much work for a bad guy to do a quick hit-and-run.
It is naive to think that the Philippine National Police officers, Office of Student Behavior officers, Task Force Safe School personnel, and Safety and Security Unit Officers can catch every criminal; the school and the streets that surround it comprise a large amount of space and there are not enough officers to cover every area all the time.
Neighborhoods are safer when the community takes on the responsibility to make them safer. Students, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, and guests may report suspicious persons, as well as keep eyes open. Safety and security are everybody’s concerns.
This statement is often true, and many times that "someone" could be watching you. Be aware of your environment and be wary of conspicuous observers. Taking personal responsibility for your safety and the safety of your community is more effective than deploying a multitude of officers in your area.
Before boarding,ask someone you know to take note of the name, plate and body number of the taxicab. If there is no one, please note the details yourself after boarding the taxi. These may be useful later on, especially at night or in the early morning. We know that some robbers use taxis when committing crimes.
7. Do not take a taxicab that does not have a body number, operator name or address on both sides. This type of taxi is usually used by robbers.
8. While this list is not all-inclusive, the crime rate on- and off-campus will decrease if we follow these common-sense rules. it is important to remember that crime can happen anywhere and anytime. Keep watch and stay safe.
CRIME PREVENTION IS EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS AND CONCERN
REPORT ALL CRIMES OR ELSE YOU MIGHT BE THE NEXT VICTIM
