Download the Physical Security in Schools 2018 Survey Report

How are U.S. schools utilizing physical security technology, systems, processes and practices to provide safe and secure learning environments for students, staff and visitors? Where are the gaps, and how can they be minimized?


The 2018 School Security Survey was conducted in July 2018 from an online survey that was sent to school administrators. Participants were asked about the technologies and methods their schools use (from school resource officers to video surveillance to photo ID badges) to prepare and defend against an intruder or active shooter. In addition to providing a snapshot of the state of security in American schools, the report addresses considerations and best practices for physical security in schools.

A total of 163 schools from across the U.S. participated anonymously in the survey.

  • 55% high schools
  • 35% elementary schools
  • 6% middle schools
  • 4% preschools
