Wearing Staff Identification Cards Taken to a New Level

I found this to be a rather humorous exhibit at the Seattle Aquarium. This is however, a good reminder that it can be important for school staff to wear their photo ID cards. Wearing of ID cards by school staff can significantly enhance security in a school because it makes it easier for an intruder to be spotted. We have found that we are rarely detected when we conduct simulated security breaches in schools where some staff not wear their identification badge.
