Campus Safety From The Perspective Of A Security Professional

Essex High School had a lockdown on April 12, 2017 in response to a suspected threat. On this "Vermont Edition," we're talking about school safety, including lockdown and lockout procedures.

A few thousand students and parents in the Essex High School community lived through a scary morning last week. A suspected threat to the high school triggered safety procedures for all the schools in Essex Junction. It was a scenario that teachers and students drill for but rarely experience in real life.

Wednesday on Vermont Edition, we look at what lockdowns and lockouts try to accomplish, and answer your questions about school safety. Our guest is Gary Margolis. He's a former UVM police chief and the CEO of Social Sentinel, a software company that helps schools identify threats made on social media.

Also on the program, there was a time when pool halls were not particularly welcoming to women. That’s really changed. Liz Ford, owner of the Green Mountain American Poolplayers Association, explains how women have dominated recent tournaments that her organization held recently.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
