Indiana has been a national leader in school safety for more than ten years with the crafting of cutting edge legislation and the establishment of the Indiana School Safety Specialist Academy.
In an effort to take school safety to the next level, the Indiana State Police encourages school corporations to hire School Resource Officers to serve not only as a first line of defense in an active shooter incident, but also to provide additional security within the schools to combat drug usage, bullying, and other issues often requiring law enforcement intervention.
