School Security

Upon detection of an active shooter, either through manual operation or Shotfinder technology, the school is flooded with a safe and breathable smoke agent (CO2, or equivalent).

Visibility in the hallways and spaces (possibly classrooms) is immediately reduced to a few feet/inches. Classroom lockdown procedures could be used in parallel, or a ‘panic button’ could optionally flood classrooms and alert the response team.... more »

School Safety

I am not sure if this is an idea that has already been thought of but might I suggest that schools should have systems to lay down smoke or foam in an emergency.

Law class in Highschool

Teach from the police handbook the law. Also teach how to interact with the police. This will inform the population of how to behave in society in a legal manner. It will also keep the police and the population safer and increasingly cooperative. This could save many lives , unnecessary tickets and fines and create a more safe environment. This would also be very helpful for many minority communities.

National Security

Hello,

It takes more effort to realize that a person's thinking can be wrong and have negative effects. Political corruption has more impact on the security of a nation then terrorism. The United States isn't defined by the government but by the people.... more »

Durable, virucidal gloves to greatly reduce the contact transmission of Covid-19

This idea concerns Covid-19. Since the Covid-19 campaign no longer exists here, I have no recourse but to post this idea, and many others, in the five current campaigns which still exist here.

It appears that DHS no longer reviews ideas that are submitted on this site. I hope they will disprove this assumption by communicating with me on each of my ideas and directly address any potential which they may have.
