“Ken Trump's book outlines what he has demonstrated throughout his career: How schools can collaborate with law enforcement, emergency management, and mental health professionals for better crisis planning. I believe many of the incidents of school crises could have been, and should have been, prevented. The information in this landmark book will reduce school violence and save lives. I recommend it with the highest possible praise.”
