WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS

WHO WE WORK WITH

Why is security in educational facilities important?

Educational institutions are a place where students focus on learning. They shouldn’t have to worry about either them or their possessions being safe from harm. There are several preventative measures you can take as an academy to make sure the education and security of your students is maintained. Education security on campus can be an increased presence of security personnel, but that still leaves several black spots in the area. CCTV is used to fill those gaps.

Safe environment

Cultivating a safe environment for staff and students alike is just as important as the learning. Being safer will allow everyone to focus on education and security would not be at the forefront of their minds. CCTV used in School and College Security has practical and emotional positives, as the presence of CCTV limits the number of opportunistic crimes being committed.

Trespassing

In most businesses there are areas that are off limits to the public. Educational facilities have a lot of foot traffic and it can be hard to decipher who and who is not meant to be on campus. Universities across the country use key card entry doors that only allow authorised personnel to enter the premises.

Dissuade vandalism

Education security is not just used to keep people safe; CCTV cameras can keep the property safe. Using security as a deterrent, as well as a way to catch criminals, has the ability to make would be vandals think twice about damaging walls with graffiti or breaking windows.

Theft prevention

Limiting trespassing and having cameras throughout the campus will reduce the possibility of theft. Whether you are a sixth form college, or the best university in the country, the safety of your faculty and students should be paramount. It is always better to prevent criminal activity than try to catch someone after the fact.

Late night study

The library is one of the most used areas of an educational institution. Some universities allow access to the library 24 hours a day. This is where University Security could not be more important. You cannot have a librarian there all times of the day and with the key card entry you can protect your students. When they leave the library, they also want to feel safe walking home. CCTV can provide them with some comfort, especially from an opportunistic criminal.

How can having a bespoke security system help to offer reassurance?

How does this help parents to relax, pupils and staff to feel safe

When pupils go to school, the parents want to feel like their child is safe. Security doors on the perimeter show a commitment to not allowing anyone off the street to walk in. Schools have a duty of care to their students and the parents; staff need to also feel safe and that their students are protected. Teaching is a rare job in which you can get invested in your pupils’ developments and worry about their lives. The last thing you would want is for something to happen to them, especially whilst under your car. A bespoke security education system can alleviate the stress and worry for parents, students and staff alike.
