A college in Arizona will help make schools safer when it comes to active shooters. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, located in Prescott, received a $769,890 grant from the National Institute of Justice to test various technologies to keep an intruder from entering a school. Professor Tom Foley, with the University’s College of Security and Intelligence, is leading the research. Foley says they will test barriers like doors, windows, glass and locks against the guns that have been used in recent mass shootings.
