Lockdown Drill Information

Lockdown Drill

DAPSS Parents:
On Thursday, May 24th 2018 between 1:34 PM and 1:39 PM, the Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security conducted the second of two, annually required Lockdown/Intruder Drills. Drills of this nature are required twice during the calendar school year and are usually conducted once each semester. These drills enable our staff and cadets to practice and prepare for violent encounter situations that may occur within the school during the course of a normal school day. At no time was a threat ever present at the Academy and the drill was successfully completed without incident. If you have any questions or concerns regarding today’s event please feel free to contact Mr. David Wainwright, Director of Public Safety at (302)322-6050 or david.wainwright@dapss.k12.de.us.
