At the Frontline: Des Moines Area Community College Director of Campus Safety Ned Miller

A look at trends and challenges facing the education sector from a security manager's perspective


SIW: How do you expect recent events such as Sandy Hook to impact education security on all levels moving forward?

Miller: I think what it does is reinforces the fact that, unfortunately, those types of events can and do happen and makes us more aware to try the best we can to put things in place to try and prevent them. The good thing is they still don’t happen every day and they’re fairly infrequent; the bad thing is when they happen they’re horrific. We do the things we can with the resources we have to try and prevent them and I’m not sure that’s a completely accomplishable task.
