School Violence

You need to have the right precautions in place to protect your students from violence, whether it involves students, educators or intruders. Reduce violence by implementing security cameras since most incidents occur in less monitored spaces like hallways or stairs. To further mitigate external threats of violence, integrate access control systems that limit who can enter your property. Avoid excessive force with metal detectors that identify weapons before they enter your property.

School Intruders

There needs to be a process in place for when an intruder makes it inside your property. A reliable intercom system is an excellent first step. Easily send a message to the entire school letting them know there's a suspicious person on site. Using your surveillance cameras, you can track their movements and warn the appropriate rooms as needed. Employ mass notifications in the forms of emails and texts. Your access control solution then lets you place the school on lockdown immediately.  

School Shootings

There are additional precautions you can take to ensure no employees have to risk their lives to protect others during a school shooting. Have your grade school security system automatically lock targeted areas, stream the shooter’s movements on screens, and notify everyone in the school as well as relevant authorities when gunshots are detected. Gunshot detectors employ acoustic, infrared and optical sensors to pinpoint the exact area of gunfire to trigger this response.

Student Bullying

Not only will your grade school security system help you respond to significant threats, it can also help with behavioral issues. Address one of the biggest problems facing schools — bullying — through your security tools. Offenders are easily identified using your surveillance cameras. Quickly pull in administrators or school resource officers for necessarily discipline using your intercom system.  Then your access control solution helps to enforce any ensuing suspension or expulsion.
