Emergency Planning and Critical Incident Response

  • All campuses should conduct threat and vulnerability assessments

  • Mass communication capability through multiple means, high and low technology Multipoint communication, able to take some locations/people out of harms way

Empowerment of public safety function in the university

  • Security needs to be represented at the senior executive level

  • Emergency response and recovery plan developed at senior level

  • Inter-operational communication needs to improve. Different level of police forces in USA all have own code – need to have common code in order to understand each other
