In the last decade the threats to our society have multiplied and evolved in many ways. Terrorist
organisations have transferred their fight from Iraq and Afghanistan to our back garden, Europe –
and we have seen the damage that a small number of determined individuals can do.
This course will start by introducing the role of the lockdown officer then discuss some of the likely
reasons for a lockdown, go over some of the steps you can take to prepare your school for lockdown
as well as what to do in the event of a lockdown taking place.
