LAS VEGAS, May 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canyon Gold Corp. (OTCQB:CGCC) (The Company). The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Defense Technologies Corporation (DTC) plans to make their 'Offender Alert Passive Scan' available to help Curb School Violence and improve Safety at Schools, Stadiums and other Public Buildings and Places.
Schools Are Becoming A Much Safer Place at High Costs, there Is Still Room for Improvement!
The Offender Alert Passive Scan™ is
an affordable solution to heightened security at schools as well as any other public building or place.
As schools have taken steps to beef up their security measures, violence in schools has taken a dive. The latest school safety numbers from the Department of Education, released Wednesday, show that schools have overall become safer places. While the data, which presents the most recent national indicators on school crime and safety, shows a slight uptick in violent deaths at school, it also shows that bullying and nonfatal crimes have greatly decreased.
At the same time, the numbers show a huge increase in terms of school security measures and training over the years. In the 1999-2000 school year, only 19 percent of public schools reported using security cameras. By 2011-2012, it was up to 64 percent. By 2013-2014, it had risen to 75 percent.
During the 2012-2013 school years, there were 53 violent deaths among students, non-students and staff members at U.S. private and public schools — either in the form of suicide or homicide. The previous year, there were 45 violent deaths at school. In 1992-1993, the earliest year for which data is available, there were 57 violent deaths at school. The number peaked in the 2006-2007 school year with 63 violent deaths. Still, schools are increasingly using resources to prepare for the worst, with nearly 90 percent of schools saying they have official plans in place in the event of a shooting.
Peggy G. Carr, acting commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics — the branch of the Department of Education that released the report — said that while trends are moving in the right direction,
