School Campuses Unique Security Needs
School shootings are too frequently in the news, and security guards allow students, faculty, and staff to feel secure and safe returning to school, giving peace of mind to the families of everyone on campus. If fear exists and students and teachers do not feel secure and protected, learning is not happening at the level it should. Safety must be a priority at schools, providing what students and faculty need to function normally to learn and grow. Off Duty Officers place only the most highly qualified men and women in the field, and they are experts handling the unique security needs of school campuses.
Monitoring Access – public school campuses are "closed campuses," which means there is a security gate around the school. Access is limited to those entering through the front office, and doors are locked to incoming traffic during the day. Although securing a school campus is valuable, it is limited without live security guards monitoring vulnerable areas specific to schools. Open spaces and frequently used doors for exit leave access otherwise unmonitored.
Setting An Authoritative Tone
Off Duty Officers understands the mere presence of professional and confident security guards deters unwanted behaviors on school campuses. Although many schools have one police officer onsite, that is not enough to provide the level of coverage students, faculty and staff deserve. Roaming the campus for disruptions and prohibited activities keeps students moving and prevents them from engaging in things on campus that are illegal and dangerous.
