Part of the reason schools request private security measures is that the rise in school violence has everyoneworried about the safety of their children. They want to enroll their kids in a secure institution with a nearly spotless history ofschool violence prevention and boasts a proven record of safeguarding children and staff when worse comes to worst.
By partnering with a private security firm, you can show the parents behind your student body that you have a practical action plan and a robust security team fully trained to prevent and deal with threats.
Prevent All Violence
When we mention violence, you’re probably reminded of school shootings that have become disconcertingly common in recent years. Although preventing such incidents is one of their jobs, professional security officers also address other types of school violence, such as sexual harassment, bullying, and minor scuffles between students, staff members, or both.
These officers also patrol the school premises during the evening, when the chance of such assaults is particularly high. While their presence alone is a deterrent against these incidents, they also use their training to stop them from occurring or escalating, thereby keeping the peace on campus.
Your Quick Response Team
Although heavily reported on television and social media, the likelihood of fatalities due to active shooter incidents is extremely low. However, you don’t want to take a chance on the numbers and only take rudimentary security measures where your students and staff are concerned.
Ensure quick response if a violent incident occurs within your premises by hiring a professional security team with first aid training. With them at the helm, you’ll have more than one person who knows how to buy the victims time until the first responders arrive.
The Keepers of Peace
The new American generation is increasingly diverse. While diversity brings kids together, their difference may also cause unnecessary friction. Our security officers will ensure a peaceful environment between all students regardless of their ethnicity, gender, nationality, orientation, et cetera, and watch out for any tension that can turn physical.
