Intercollegiate Athletics Safety and Security Best Practices Guide

Publication Date: 2014
Abstract: The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi hosted the first annual National Intercollegiate Athletics Safety and Security Summit on January 28-30, 2014. Representatives from university and college athletic administrations, athletic conferences, Bowls, and public safety agencies addressed current safety and security issues facing intercollegiate athletics and identified solutions as well as proposed future best practices. The discussions with security experts at the Summit, the publishing of the Promising Practices for Securing College and University Spectator Events from Criminal Extremist Attacks, and the research conducted at the NCS4, provided the basis for the development and evolution of the second edition of Intercollegiate Athletics Safety and Security Best Practices Guide
