Bearacade Campus Safety Program
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the US Department of Homeland Security, the average time of an active shooter or hostile intruder event is 11.5 minutes. Average police response time is 12 to 18 minutes. Since so much terror and many casualties occur before police arrive, staff members of schools need to be able to proactively protect themselves and their students.
The BEARACADE Door Control System deploys quickly on any interior classroom or office door to effectively barricade the door in the event of a hostile intruder incident. The device provides valuable time to the occupants of the room and to first responders. Even with accelerating response times, faculty, staff, and students need a solution in their hands to protect themselves during those precious minutes before police arrive.
Montgomery County Crime Stoppers, Inc. dba Multi County Crime Stoppers, has begun a pilot program in the Cleveland ISD, Tarkington ISD and Splendora ISD with 1000 Bearacade Door Control Systems. Crime Stoppers Coordinator, Specialist Steven Squier, MCSO and Chief Rex Evans of the Cleveland ISD Police Department spearheaded this project.
The first sets of Bearacade devices are being rolled in for install. Cleveland ISD will begin installing first thing after schools dismissal. Tarkington ISD is receiving their order of units for installation in their schools as is Splendora ISD.
If you’d like to help Crime Stoppers MAKE A DIFFERENCE with a donation for our area School Districts (Montgomery, Liberty, San Jacinto) to protect our children and teachers, you can…. We are raising funds to purchase as many Bearacades as possible, for as many classrooms in our area, as possible. Every single device donated is one more classroom full of kids and their teacher, now protected.
For $49 per door, BEARACADE™ can stop a bad situation from becoming much, much worse. And if just one individual is saved, $49 dollars and less than 8 seconds is well worth the investment.
Montgomery County Crime Stoppers is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to keeping Montgomery, Liberty and San Jacinto Counties a safe place to live, work, and play.
