NAPCO Security Technologies has recently become a PASS Partner (Partner Alliance for Safer Schools) as part of its commitment to help provide more school and campus solutions in the face of the escalating violence and tragedies nationwide. PASS K-12 is a program that offers comprehensive information and objective guidelines for securing school facilities, created by a multidisciplinary team spanning security, education, infrastructure and corporate sectors. PASS presents the comprehensive tools and insights needed for public safety and security professionals; school administrators and school boards, to work in concert to implement a tiered school security protection approach, from inside to the outer perimeter.

“NAPCO ‘s joining the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools was a natural for us. Knowledge is power, and it’s especially critical when it comes to school security, from my perspective both as NAPCO’s SVP of Sales, as well as the father of school-age children,” said Stephen Spinelli. 

As a long-time trusted source in some of the largest school districts and best-known educational institutions across the country, NAPCO Security Technologies, and its divisions, Marks USA, Alarm Lock, and Continental Access have developed a wide range of security technology solutions, to fit any classroom, campus and budget for intrusion and commercial fire alarms and reporting, school and classroom locking, and access control, video, visitor and security management. 

As part of its PASS K-12 partnership, NAPCO will now be developing new school security training courses and incorporating the PASS K-12 Program, taught by certified NAPCO trainers, for security providers and campus security professionals.
