Montgomery County has a unique strategy to ensure safety at schools, daycares, and District Justice Offices. Tom Sullivan is the Director of Public Safety for Montgomery County. Sullivan says, C.L.A.S.S or The Countywide Law Enforcement Alerting and Safety System allows administrators to take quick action in contacting police.
“Any school administrator can discreetly push a button to notify police. It comes up on a computer inside their police cars, allowing for immediate response.”
C.L.A.S.S has been installed at 500 schools in Montgomery County. The system was developed in the wake of the Amish school shootings. Sullivan was a recent guest on the WNPV program, Security Advisors On Radio with Dave Gordon and Mike Dayoc.
