Purdue University has completed and released the results of a security review after the Jan. 21 on-campus shooting that left 21-year-old student dead.
The goal was to look for things that cold be done better during an incident such as this.
One proposal would be to keep all building exterior doors open so people could seek shelter, another would make classroom doors lockable from the inside to keep an intruder out.
At $500 per door and with more than 41,000 doors, that could be very expensive.
Other ideas would make their text alert system “opt-out” instead of “opt-in” so more would automatically receive alerts.
Another idea would explain to professors when to stop teaching class when alerts go out.
Some didn’t stop class.
Now Purdue has to decide what actions to take.
