One of the security challenges that schools are currently facing involves false reports made to emergency services. In the fourth episode of Paul Timm’s podcast – The Changing Face of School Security, he talks with Jin Kim about this topic:
After 23 years in the FBI, Jin Kim decided he wasn’t done advocating for safety and joined Safe and Sound Schools to continue his passion in school security.
In recent years, Jin saw that schools and law enforcement had issues with security and what is known as “swatting”, or prank calls made to emergency services to falsely report violence or threats to dispatch armed officers. Not only does this waste time and resources, it creates fear and the potential for danger, even if no threat is present. From there, Jin made it his mission to educate schools and law enforcement on tactical readiness and active shooter response training.
Who is Jin Kim?
Former FBI Agent Jin Kim is a widely regarded expert in active shooter and targeted violence, and the founding principal of both the PerSec Academy and Advisory Group, and the Bureau Consortium.
