In January of 2014, Governor Deval Patrick signed Executive Order 548, establishing a Cross-Secretariat Task Force on School Safety and Security in Massachusetts.
In an effort to enhance safety policies and procedures in schools throughout Massachusetts, including public districts, charter schools, independent schools and parochial schools, Executive Order 548 recommends best practice security measures to all involved in school emergency preparedness.
LAN-TEL offers security solutions that address the four priorities that make up the framework of the Task Force plan.
