A School Emergency Notification System Provides Critical Protection

These Systems Alert Law Enforcement, Staff, and Parents Instantly

A School Emergency Notification System Provides Critical Protection

Alyssa’s Law is proposed Texas legislation designed to improve law enforcement’s response times in the event of an emergency at public schools. It requires that public elementary and secondary schools must be supplied with silent panic alarms that directly notify law enforcement. 

Named after Alyssa Alhadeff, a 14-year-old student that died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 in a mass school shooting event along with 16 other people, the law was passed in New Jersey and Florida and is pending in New York, Arizona, Nebraska, and Texas. 

When integrated into an emergency notification system, these panic buttons provide superior peace of mind and protection when every second counts. Let’s look at what these systems can offer schools in Katy, TX.

The Benefits of Intrusion Detection for Staff & Students

How Do School Intrusion Detection Systems Work?

In March 2023, the Amarillo Police Department reported multiple shots fired in north Amarillo, TX, with one stray bullet inflicting minor injuries on a student at Palo Duro High School. In response, Hamlet Elementary and Palo Duro High School went into lockdown to ensure the safety of the students and faculty. 

Securing campuses and protecting students and staff has been an ever-increasing priority of Texas schools, escalating since the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde and many incidents in other states prior to that. Schools are re-evaluating their security measures with safety upgrades, including secured entrances, reinforced access points, enhanced surveillance systems, and intrusion detection.

Here, we’ll look at the features inherent in intrusion detection and how it helps protect schools.

People Want to Know: Do Schools Check Their Security Cameras?

At most schools, surveillance cameras are only checked when there’s already been a reported incident. That can de-escalate a situation or identify a suspect, but by the time the cameras are checked, it’s too late to prevent anything from happening. 

How can school security staff prevent situations from reaching that point? 

There are two ways to get ahead of emergencies: through on-site or remote video monitoring. If your Amarillo, TX, school doesn’t currently have a monitoring process in place, here are two methods you can use to better protect your students.
