What others are saying about this book:
Excerpt from the Book's - Foreword
"My experiences as Superintendent in three previous cities taught me that I had to hire an
exceptional professional to lead the system and restore confidence in our ability to protect
students. The Colonel brought all of his expertise, experience and commitment and built an
effective, professional force. I am pleased that he has outlined in this book the road to success
in one of the most challenging problems public schools face.
Cleveland Hammonds, Ed D
and put it in a form that reads like a novel. A copy of this book should be in the professional
section of every urban school library and a must read for all urban security divisions.”

engaging book about the professional experiences of a seasoned law enforcement officer.
McCrary’s language is fluid, his descriptions are strong, and his instructions are concise and
easy to understand. McCrary uses his vast knowledge to lead readers through a variety of
challenges they will likely encounter while working with public school security staff, students,
faculty, administration, local police officers and the community at large. However, as a lay
reader with no experience in security, I enjoyed McCrary’s autobiographical information and
his personal stories about his life and his work.”
